weekend of prayer cover

Weekend of

prayer & action

against hunger

15-16 October 2022

‘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 for a second year for a Weekend of Prayer and Action Against Hunger on 15-16 October, 2022, coinciding with World Food Day on 16 October. Last year’s resources for churches and families are available here, and include translations in English, Spanish, French, German and Portuguese. New and updated resources will be posted in the coming months as well.

This has been a challenging year for most of us, but particularly in the poorest parts of the world. Right now 45 million people—21 million children—are at risk of experiencing famine due to a deadly mix of conflict, climate change and COVID-19’s devastating economic impacts. The war in Ukraine has dramatically increased the costs of commodities, fuel, and fertiliser, supercharging the hunger crisis to create the potential for mass starvation across hunger hotspots in multiple nations around the world. Children are most at risk.

Unite with us in prayer and action
