The 40 Hour Famine still raises money for World Vision, it's just a little different this year!
In 2017, we wanted to address the current refugee crisis as the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time. In Syria and the Middle East – millions of children and their families are forced to flee their home because of conflict. In South Sudan and East Africa – millions of children and their families are also fleeing due to a combination of famine and conflict.
This year's 40 Hour Famine Backpack Challenge will test your resilience. You'll commit to living out of your backpack for 40 hours to raise funds for refugee and displaced children. Pack the essentials - food, water, warm clothes; whatever you think you'll need to get through.
