YOUR #CLIMATEACTION MADE A DIFFERENCE!

 

WHAT YOUR FRIENDS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT FAMINE 2020:

 

“The 30 Hour Famine challenged me mentally and physically...I was able to better empathise with people around the world who may not be as fortunate as me - especially those suffering from food shortage or floods.

Chuan Min, Grace and Vera (14), Methodist Girls’ School

“Experiencing hardships of the underprivileged, being exposed to lifestyle changes, and realising that our habits harm the earth…have empowered us to initiate change – to be more aware of our actions, make more eco-friendly lifestyle changes, and raise awareness of climate action.

 Lois, Chloe and Wee Nee (15), CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ School

“30 Hour Famine was a unique digital experience that reminded us to be more conscious of our lifestyle choices to fight climate change, lest it destroys the livelihoods of vulnerable communities...while our small actions may be like drops in an ocean, with regular widespread efforts, they can bring a wave of change.”

Isaiah, Evan and Yi Xuan (18) , Anglo-Chinese Junior College
