Proceeds from Macau Famine will be used to support World Vision’s food security, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and livelihood assistance projects for children and families affected by conflicts in South Sudan and Syria.


Can you feel their pain?

The ongoing conflict in South Sudan has driven many children out of their homes, with food shortage occurring at the same time. Though eight-month-old Chok has escaped the violence with his family, he has been identified as malnourished, rendering his brother Jima very worried. Jima was so helpless that all he could do was to pray that Chok would receive nutritious food and be able to recover.

We live in a world that never stops making progress. However, neither have the advancements in civilisation brought a halt to conflict, nor has economic development alleviated extreme poverty. Today, about 490 million people in the world are both hungry and affected by conflict. The conflicts in South Sudan and Syria have caused refugee children and families to suffer. This year’s Macau Famine will continue to speak out for hungry refugees. Join now and provide help for them!


Red Packet

We would like to thank for the 43 schools and churches which have participated in this year’s Red Packet campaign to support our food security, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and livelihood assistance projects for children and families affected by conflicts in South Sudan and Syria. Our special appreciation goes to the following groups with the most funds raised and participants.

Please refer to the Chinese website for the list of winners.


Drawing Competition

Aluel was very skinny because she suffered from acute malnutrition.

As food supply remains low, it is estimated that over 6 million people in South Sudan are affected by food insecurity. 18-month-old Aluel was acutely malnourished, but after being treated by a team of World Vision nutrition experts and receiving peanut-based nutrition packs, her weight is slowly returning to the normal level.

Please refer to the Chinese website for the list of winners.

School Famine

Hunger is not only an individual problem, but a global issue. Students can learn more about hunger and poverty through Famine talks, workshops and Rich and Poor’s Banquet. Schools are also encouraged to organise their own fundraising activities to support starving children.

Through Famine talks and workshops, students are engaged to discuss and learn about hunger issues.

By taking part in the Rich and Poor’s Banquet, students eat different meals to experience the gap between the rich and the poor.

A school held a charity sale to raise funds for hungry children.

Skip-A-Meal

A meal is precious in the eyes of starving children, because that may be the only meal they have that day. Join Skip-A-Meal! Donate the MOP100 (or more) you saved from a meal you skipped to support World Vision’s food security, health & nutrition, and livelihood projects.

In South Sudan, children need to rely on nutrition supplement packs to restore their health.
