6 Since 2008, Nazarene churches have raised over $1.8 million through World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine. But the real success is not the money. It’s the lives changed that the money represents, in both youth groups in the United States and children and families in Malawi.

7 Nazarene students participated in the 30 Hour Famine almost 40,000 times, exposing them to God’s call to help the hungry. In 2012, Nazarene congregations raised an average of $1217 when they participated in the 30 Hour Famine. Resources were sent to Mzimba, Malawi where in 2007, 60 percent of residents did not have enough to eat during the lean months (December to April). Now, due to combined efforts in the area, including the Nazarene/World Vision Mzimba Food Security Project, nine out of 10 people have enough food all year round.

8 2012 saw the most groups participate in the 30 Hour Famine so far. However, Nazarene groups still have a fulfillment rate that is an average of five percent below the national average

9 The World Vision/Nazarene partner project in Mzimba, Malawi provided additional food security programs and support (i.e. conservation farming training, irrigation, fish ponds, grain storage, and seed banks) in an area where World Vision had already been working. The Church of the Nazarene was also able to uniquely provide spiritual care alongside its programs, resulting in several church plants. Through church communities (both Nazarene and other), Nazarene Compassionate Ministries also supported and trained people to develop income-generating projects in order to care for children who are vulnerable and women who have been widowed. See “Freedom From Hunger” in the Winter 2012 NCM Magazine for more description.

10 Here are some of the things that NCM did in Malawi through the Mzimba Food Security Project Worked with 55 villages (almost 25,000 people) throughout the Mzimba area providing spiritual integration with World Vision’s and NCM’s food security projects. Supported and trained the community in constructing 180 fish ponds. Distributed 5 tons of soya, bean, and groundnut seeds. Distributed 65 goats to people living with AIDS. Distributed 45 pigs at nine Nazarene churches in order to start income-generating projects to help children and women affected by HIV and AIDS. These churches were required to give a set of male and female piglets to another church so that the project could be replicated. Replanted 2,000 water reserving trees in order to help build up the water table for irrigation. Helped churches start income generating projects such as building a house to rent, a grain bank, and a mill to turn maize into flour.

11 Because the Mzimba Food Security Project came to its program end in September 2012, the money raised through Nazarene churches from 2013 on will go toward a World Vision/Nazarene partner project in the Zambezia province of Mozambique. This project will focus on access to water and sanitation in addition to nutrition and food security. Water and sanitation are building blocks for food security and community health.
