A Global Day of Prayer to End Famine is taking place on May 21, 2017, declared by organizations around the world including World Vision. More people are facing famine today than any time in modern history. Millions more risk starvation from drought and food shortages.
More than 20 million men, women, and children face famine in the world today.
- Famine has been declared in areas of South Sudan. Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen are on the brink of famine.
- Millions in Kenya and Ethiopia are suffering from drought and food shortages.
- 1.4 million children are severely malnourished. If left untreated, more than one-third of these children will die from starvation and disease.
The Church has a unique voice in making a difference during this unprecedented period of suffering.
