Join churches worldwide on 10 June 2018 to pray for an end to famine.

In May 2017, more than 120 faith-based organisations representing over 1 billion Christians worldwide joined together for a Global Day of Prayer to End Famine as millions were on the brink of starvation. 

The Global Day of Prayer to End Famine played a crucial role in raising awareness and inspiring action around the world. Through humanitarian efforts, we have seen some enormous obstacles beaten for many people facing hunger. Unfortunately, in 2018, the risk of famine remains, and has even increased, having the potential to spread to many other areas.

More people still face famine today than any time in modern history. 

More than 20 million people are at risk of starvation across Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen. Globally, millions more suffer from drought and food shortages.

These crises are the result of conflict, drought, poverty and global inaction, and in most cases they are preventable. Churches have a prophetic role in calling its members, wider society and governments to make a difference during this unprecedented period of suffering.

Food is more than a human right; it is a divine gift that cannot be impeded.

On 10 June 2018, we are joining together across countries, languages and traditions to respond to the global hunger crisis in our churches, in our prayers and through our actions.


1. Commit to pray

Commit time to pray for an end to famine in your church and in your family. Find resources to guide your prayer.

2. Share your prayer

Use #praytoendfamine to share your prayer and actions on social media. Be inspired by what others are sharing.
