Africare has launched The #Fast4Hunger Challenge to acknowledge the 868 million chronically hungry people world-wide, 98 percent of whom live in developing countries.

The campaign will be kicked off with a challenge—in which we are asking you to pledge to fast for an hour or more on World Hunger Day, Tuesday, May 28.

Pledge in honor of the many men, women and children who suffer from lack of access to proper nutrition. How will you feel when hunger persists? Will you feel distracted, irritable or weak? How might it affect you to endure hunger every day?

We invite you to share your experiences through social media, using the hashtag #Fast4Hunger.

Be sure to download your #Fast4Hunger Challenge Toolkit and accept the challenge on the Facebook Event Page.
