WHAT IS WORLD VISION’S 30 HOUR FAMINE?

• It’s a worldwide hunger awareness program to help feed the world’s poorest children.

• Our youth group goes without food for 30 hours to get a taste of true hunger.

• Through family, friends and group fundraisers we raise money to save kids’ lives. ($30 will feed and care for a child for an entire month!)

• The experience teaches us about Christ’s compassion, and about how we can help change the world.

slide3

IS WORLD HUNGER STILL A BIG ISSUE?

• Every day 29,000 children die from hunger and hunger-related diseases.

• As many as 1 in 5 children die before reaching their fifth birthday.

• One sixth of the world’s population does not have access to safe drinking water.

slide4

WHY DO THE FAMINE?

• We want to feel the power of Christ’s compassion.

• It brings our youth group closer together, and in a closer relationship with Christ.

• If we don’t step up, who will?

slide5

HOW THE 30 HOUR FAMINE MAKES A DIFFERENCE

• Just $1 can feed and care for a child for an entire day.

• The price of a family dinner we eat at a restaurant in the U.S. can provide food and care for several months.

• We’re offering children more than a chance to survive – we’re giving them hope for a better future.

slide6

HOW YOU CAN HELP

• Pray for our group members as we do the 30 Hour Famine.

• Sponsor a Famine participant (or two or three!) as they do the Famine.

• Support our group fundraisers.

• Volunteer to help at our Famine event.

slide7

BEYOND THE FAMINE

• You can have a deeper relationship with one child through World Vision’s child sponsorship program.

• Child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to change a child’s life while helping an entire community become self-sufficient.

• To sponsor a child, check with your church’s youth leader, visit our Famine Sunday table after the service,or call 800-7-FAMINE (800-732-6463).
