Living on rations
We’ve designed the Ration Challenge to reflect, as closely as we can, what it’s like to eat rations as a Syrian refugee in Jordan. Your ration pack will contain exactly the same food that is distributed to refugees. You may get a shock – it’s not much for a week!
Just a small amount of rice, flour, lentils, chick peas, beans, fish and oil. And only water to drink. That’s it. No meat, no coffee, no alcohol!
Vegetarian or vegan? We’ll remove the sardines from your pack and you can eat an alternative e.g. swap sardines for tofu.
If you work hard on your fundraising, you’ll be able to ‘earn’ extra ingredients – for example, a spice or flavouring or a fresh vegetable of your choice – to add to your ration pack.
So the friends, families and colleagues who are willing to sponsor you will be playing a crucial role in helping you make it through the week, as well as providing vital funds to support refugees.
