Do the 40 Hour Famine

The 40 Hour Famine happens every year in May. Participants go without food, or something else they rely on, for 20 to 40 hours. They raise funds for children in need, like Abida. Your school may already take part, or you can sign up with a group or on your own. Visit the 40 Hour Famine website for more details.

Sponsor a child in a water-stressed community

The changes in Abida's community came about through the generous donations of World Vision sponsors.
