World Vision Malaysia – 30 hour Famine June 1, 2007

Posted by Zara's Mama in misc.

Thavara peeks through the windows of the school, wishing she was inside, sitting on a wooden chair and reciting her lessons.
Unfortunately, her family is too poor to give her an education.
Every day, together with her family, she scavenges the streets and dumping areas for food.
Thavara is not alone.
Close to 120 million children around the world are like Thavara – they do not receive an education due to poverty.
For most Malaysians, it is difficult to imagine how much education can mean to a child. Without education as a stepping stone, poor children grow up bound in the vicious cycle of poverty.
You can help change that.

The 30 Hour Famine is a global movement against hunger and poverty.
It is an experiential, lifechanging camp aimed at spreading awareness about global poverty and raising funds to improve the lives of needy children and communities.

The 30 Hour Famine brings together people from throughout Malaysia to experience the life of a person living in poverty and hunger.

For 30 hours, you enrich your life by doing something practical for those in need. Only 30 hours in support of changing a child’s lifetime,
30 hours in exchange for a stable and bright future for a child,
30 hours to give a child like Thavara reality instead of empty dreams.

World Vision 30 Famine

Besides doing a good deed, it looks like a lot of fun to me.

This year World Vision Malaysia’s 30 Hour Famine theme, ‘hungry for HOPE’, was born out of the desire to brighten the future of children like Thavara.
With the support of corporate sponsors, celebrities, participants experience an amazing time together, bound by a vision to help those who have been neglected.
Fancy being involved in something special this year?
Why not fast for those who are hungry for hope?

Note 2 : I’m nursing and can’t join this event. Hopefully you can join in and participate and blog about it.
