It hurts to be hungry — even for one day. Imagine how it feels for the children of West Africa, where poor rainfall, crop failures, skyrocketing food prices and insecurity have led to a devastating hunger crisis.
Thousands of people joined us in solidarity and empathy to support more than 1 million children in West Africa who are at risk. Learn More
We helped make hunger history!
Fastathon is over, but our work continues. Children in West Africa and around the world still need your help.
Too many children are fighting for their lives due to the hunger crisis in West Africa. Children don’t have enough to eat — and one million lives are at risk. That’s why we’ve mounted an emergency response to help children and families in West Africa live a life free from hunger, with support such as nutrition, therapeutic feeding and farming programs. Caring people from around the world participated in a 24-hour “fasting marathon” by skipping a snack, missing a meal or fasting* for the full 24 hours to help raise funds and awareness.
