There are more people facing famine in the world today than at any other time in modern history.
World Renew invites you to join Christians and churches around the world in a Global Day of Prayer to End Famine on May 21.
Globally, more than 20 million people are at risk of starvation, while millions more suffer from drought and food shortages. In this desperate situation children suffer most and become increasingly vulnerable.
"There is great danger that on its current course, the global response to this crisis will be hugely inadequate and will lead to unimaginable suffering and death, which is eminently avoidable. We believe the churches have a prophetic role in calling to mobilizing their members, the wider society and governments, and making a difference during this unprecedented period of suffering."

South Sudan's churches have played a critical role in trying to mediate the conflict which has torn apart the world's newest nation since 2013, and members of the ACT Alliance (including World Renew) collaborate closely with them to support peace and reconciliation.
