Showing refugees we’re with them, not against them
More than 8,000 passionate people took the Act for Peace Ration Challenge and showed refugees we’re with them, not against them. During Refugee Week, 19-25 June, participants ate the same rations as a Syrian refugee (just a small amount of rice, beans, lentils, fish, oil and flour) and raised money to provide refugees with the food, medicine and support they need to survive.
Registrations for the Ration Challenge 2016 have now closed but you can donate to the cause today or pre-register to guarantee your place in 2017. You’ll be able to register before anyone else and we’ll guarantee you a food pack when you confirm your registration. 2016 Ration kits sold out in record time, so pre-register for 2017 today.
1 Taking the Challenge
Participants in the challenge are sent everything they need to take part, including a toolkit, and for the first 5,000 registrants, a ration food pack with the exact same rations a Syrian refugee lives on in a refugee camp in Jordan.
2 Surviving on Rations
During Refugee Week, 19-25 June, participants eat the same rations as a Syrian Refugee.
3 Raising Money and Awareness
Participants share their experience with friends and family and ask them for sponsorship on their online fundraising page. The money raised will help refugees around the world and show them we’re with them, not against them.
