Ryley students hold 30-hour fast for world hunger relief
This year, 15 students at Ryley School had a chance to be part of an eye-opening fasting fund-raising experience.
Ryley 30-Hour Famine participants began their fast for the hungry Thursday April 26th at 7:30 a.m. and ended April 27th at 2:30 p.m.
The 30 Hour Famine gives students a chance to join other students worldwide to learn more about issues such as hunger, poverty, and injustice.
It is powered by World Vision, which is a leading organization helping people in need and puts money raised to work by bringing emergency food aid to disaster zones, helping change the direction of lives in a positive way, and other issues in need of aid.
Across the world 11,000 children under the age of five die from hunger and related causes.
