Where the money goes

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 eight 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.


Over 11 million Syrian people – nearly half the country’s population – have been displaced because of war. They are some of the world’s most vulnerable people; mothers and fathers struggling to feed their children; sons and daughters missing out on an education; people dying for want of basic medical care that we take for granted in Australia; and families who, after losing everything, are not getting the support they deserve to rebuild their lives.

The money you raise will help provide food ration packs to the most vulnerable – the same food you’ll be eating during the Challenge – as well as hygiene kits, medical help and psychosocial support.

Yes, I’d like to be part of it!

Emergency hygiene kits that contain clothing, soap and sanitary items help people living in camps maintain health and prevent disease.

Community medical days each month provide hundreds of refugees with life-saving access to specialist care.

Education forums for children help them continue their education and counselling support helps refugees deal with the trauma they’ve been through.
