What is the 40 Hour Famine?


The 40 Hour Famine remains one of Australia's largest youth events. For 40 hours participants go without something important, raising much-needed awareness and funds for World Vision's work to address poverty and hunger.

Through this year's 40 Hour Famine, you'll be supporting the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time - the refugee and displaced persons crisis. Globally, more than 65.1 million people have been forced out of their homes due to conflict.

When you take part, you'll commit to living out of your backpack for 40 hours to raise funds for refugee and displaced children. This experience will help you begin to understand what it's like for these children who have left almost everything behind, even if just for a weekend.
