More than 2.5 million Kiwis have participated in the iconic fundraiser, with $72 million collected for World Vision’s emergency and sustainable development work around the world. “ We’re appreciative to the millions of Kiwis who’ve helped us improve and save lives over the past 40 years,” says World Vision chief executive Chris Clarke. “For a little country, we’ve managed to make a huge difference in the fight against poverty.” This year’s 40-Hour Famine starts at 8pm on Friday May 23, and ends at noon on May 25. Money raised will go to Malawi in South-East Africa, which is suffering from a severe food crisis caused by extreme weather. The NZ donations will be used to improve food security and nutrition, as well as sustainable agriculture projects and community health initiatives. “ We encourage every Kiwi to help Malawi this year. You can do the famine yourself, sponsor someone who is, or make a donation at worldvision. org.nz,” says Mr Clarke.
