Hundreds of thousands of young people around the world are currently fasting or giving up their tech toys to raise funds for World Vision’s work.
The 30-hour famine, arranged by Christian organization World Vision, challenges students to give up food or their favourite technologies for 30 hours from 29 to 30 April.
Through sponsorships and fundraising initiatives, their fasts raise money to be donated to hungry children around the world, including in Burundi, the Horn of Africa, Zimbabwe, DRC and Malawi.
