Fast for Peace is a project that promotes Gandhi’s messages of truth and nonviolence, tolerance, and voluntary temperance.
The 15th of every month is a #fastforpeace day. Members and non-members alike are invited to participate.
Gandhi inspired millions by demonstrating truth and nonviolence as facets of self-control.
He fasted at the risk of his own life and saved countless others.

October’s #fastforpeace Charity
Each month, participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to donate the money they saved on food to help others. For their work responding to the world’s worst humanitarian crises, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) was selected as October’s #fastforpeace charity.
In Bangladesh, which was part of India until 1947, nearly a million people live in the world’s biggest refugee camp. The IRC has established two mobile medical teams to serve them. This is just a small part of their international presence in over 40 countries, where they provided access to heathcare to more than 31 million people in 2020. You can learn more about their work and make a donation, on their website: www.rescue.org
“Fasting is regarded by all religions as a great discipline. Those who voluntarily fast become gentle and purified by it. A pure fast is a very powerful prayer. It is no small thing for [hundreds of thousands] of people to voluntarily abstain from food… It ennobles individuals and nations” ~ Mohandas Gandhi
