40 DAYS OF OUTREACH
Our students will spend 40 days learning about issues surrounding hunger and how, as Christians, we are called to use everything we have to love people in need in the name of Jesus Christ. They will be participating in service projects and various fund raisers. Everyone is invited to join them in raising money to impact those in desperate need of food and supplies in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa.
A matching grant is allowing for every dollar donated to World Vision to be multiplied 17 TIMES!
The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ -Matthew 25:40

WHERE IS YOUR MONEY GOING?
Your donation to the Hunger Relief Funds helps stop hunger for children and families in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. World Vision is partnering with communities, faith leaders and governments to tackle the root causes of social, economic, and safety-related issues. Our money will give clean water, improved food, financial resources, protection, and sanitation and hygiene systems
Below are facts about the DRC:
- the world’s largest hunger crisis, fueled by over 25 years of conflict and poverty.
- 26 million people (about the population of Texas) are severely hungry
- over 5 million people have been displaced from their homes because of violence
- they’re dealing with compounded problems from armed conflict, displaced populations, food insecurity, disease, and natural disasters
- ongoing conflicts in Eastern DRC have threatened the safety of vulnerable communities, and a range from flooding to drought has caused setbacks in agriculture, income, and people’s overall livelihoods
- as many as 26.4 million people are experiencing high levels of food insecurity, and the country ranks as one of the highest in need of humanitarian assistance amid the global hunger crisis
“Africa is a continent in flames and deep down, if we really accepted that Africans were equal to us, we would all do more to put the fire out. We’re standing around with watering cans, when what we really need is the fire brigade.” -Bono, lead singer of U2
One in nine people in the world don’t get enough to eat. Many poor farmers can’t grow enough food to feed their own families, much less sell to get income for essentials like education and healthcare. That’s why World Vision partners with communities to address immediate food needs – but also to equip them to grow food for the long term. And this change happens when groups like yours raise money through the 30 Hour Famine!
