weekend of prayer cover

Weekend of

prayer & action

against hunger

16-17 October 2021

‘Give us this day our daily bread…’Matthew 6:11

We believe famine has no place in the 21st century and is entirely preventable.

That is why churches worldwide are joining together to declare a Weekend of Prayer and Action Against Hunger on 16-17 October, 2021, coinciding with World Food Day on 16 October. Resources for churches and families are available here, and include translations in English, Spanish, French, German and Portuguese.

This has been a challenging year for most of us, but particularly in the poorest parts of the world. Right now 41 million people are at risk of experiencing famine due to a deadly mix of conflict, climate change and COVID-19’s devastating economic impacts. Children are most at risk.

Unite with us in prayer and action
