It’s coming ~ 30-Hour East Famine to hit Kuching on this 21st!

When? 21st March 2009 (Saturday), 12pm to 22nd March 2009 (Sunday), 6pm

Where? Christian Ecumenical Worship Centre, Kuching

The 30-Hour Famine is basically a global movement against hunger and poverty; ~ an experiential, life-changing camp aimed at spreading awareness about global poverty, and raising funds to improve the lives of needy children and communities, internationally and locally.

At 30-Hour Famine,

1. Campers fast for 30 hours in solidarity with millions who go hungry because of wars, disasters and poverty.

2. During the fast, campers will be given a glimpse of the multitude of pressing global issues affecting poor and marginalized communities. This will be conducted via talks, simulation games, and group activities. On the other hand, there will also be fun activities such as a concert and movies during the camp to keep campers entertained.

3. More importantly, campers know their 30 hours of hunger is bringing hope to children and communities

To participate, campers are required to make a minimum donation of:

 RM80 for students/senior citizens (aged 55 years old and above)

 RM120 for non-students/working adults

Due to space constraint, 1,000 seats are available on a first-come-first serve basis. Registration closes on 1st March 2009. ~ dateline over liao~

*for more information, please visit the official webpage at

Calling out for big-hearted enthusiastic campers to be, who've missed the registration dateline ~ 2 good friends of mine had signed up to be volunteers to help out at the event, & also made the camper's donation pledge as well. So now there are 2 available seats to be filled ~ to be the stand-in camper, everything is FREE which, includes the certificate of participation, survival kit & breakfast kit (post-camp snack, i suppose), EXCEPT the complimentary T-shirts (for their own keepsake; you can purchase those on the spot too, i think).
For those still interested to participate, kindly drop me a message @ my e-mail add a.s.a.p.

I'll be there too *shooting pichas*, so cya guys there! =)
