We’ve made it – THANK YOU!

Thank you so much for being part of this dedicated and passionate community. Since the Ration Challenge started four years ago, more than 35,000 of you have come together to take the challenge and raised more than $8 million to provide food, medicine and education for refugees; and support communities impacted by conflict and disaster.

Together, we believe we can do even more!

What it's all about

The Ration Challenge was a huge success – but together we can do even more! 

This year 12,000 of you took the challenge and ate the same rations as a Syrian refugee. As a community the Ration Challenge is now 35,000 people strong, coming together to show refugees we’re with them, not against them.

Together if we each do our part we can do even more! Learn more here. 


The money you raise by taking on the Act for Peace Ration Challenge will help support Syrian refugees living in camps in Jordan, having fled 7 years of conflict and violence in their own country.

We’ll also use the funds to help tackle injustice around the world through Act for Peace’s emergency response, long-term development and advocacy programs.

Your Ration Challenge community

More than 12,000 of you came together to show refugees we’re with them, not against them – thank you!

The money you raise will provide food rations, medical care, education and other essential support to Syrian refugees living in Jordan – people like Assala – as well as helping other conflict- and disaster-affected communities around the world.

Assala’s story
Assala lives in a tent in an urban refugee camp on the outskirts of Amman, Jordan, with her husband Ahed and their 13-year-old son Naser. They fled from Syria 6 years ago to escape the bombings. Assala hasn’t seen her mother, or her sisters, since then.

In Syria, the family lived a good life. They owned a chicken farm and sold olive oil. But now, Ahed has a back injury and can’t work, so Assala has to pick up whatever work she can to help feed her family. The family depend entirely on her small income, and the food rations they’ve received thanks to the money raised through the Ration Challenge.
