    World Vision's 30 Hour Famine fundraiser goes virtual (2020/05/22)

    The COVID-19 crisis has changed day-to-day life for many people, but it's had an especially great impact on the poor. In the world's worst-off countries, poor nutrition and sanitation have magnified the damage of the epidemic. The World Vision charity organization is holding its annual 30 Hour Famine to raise money for underprivileged communities. Due to the coronavirus, the event is going virtual for the first time.

    Haiti, a country in the Caribbean, has experienced natural disasters and poverty for many years. Faced with the threat COVID-19, Julie Lee, National Director of World Vision Haiti, said that more than 60% of the population does not have access to clean water and soap. It is estimated that more than 4 million people will need humanitarian assistance due to COVID-19.

    For 31 years, World Vision Taiwan has held the 30 Hour Famine to raise money for famine, war and natural disaster relief. Participants spend a weekend fasting and learning about the impact of hunger on children around the world. This year, in light of COVID-19 outbreak, the event will be conducted virtually for the first time this year.

    31年來首次 世界展望會推「一個人的飢餓三十」

    武漢肺炎改變了許多人的日常生活,對資源不足的國家的影響尤其巨大,世界上最貧困的國家,營養和衛生條件差,更加劇了危害。飢餓三十人道救援邁入第31屆,今年台灣世展會透過「一個人的飢餓三十」活動,透過線上延續,希望串連起國人愛心。

    位於加勒比海的海地,長年經歷天災、貧窮,海地世界展望會會長李宜帆表示,面對武漢肺炎的威脅,當地的醫療資源嚴重不足,6成以上人口沒有乾淨的水源和肥皂,預估超過400萬人因疫情而需要人道救援。

    另外,索馬利亞面臨蝗災所帶來的糧荒,再加上疫情,索馬利亞需要人道救援的人口數量暴增到344萬。
