I am taking on the Act for Peace Ration Challenge during Refugee Week and opening my eyes to what it’s like for refugees to survive on rations. From 17-23 June I will be eating the same rations as a Syrian refugee – just a small amount of rice, lentils, chick peas, sardines, oil and kidney beans. That’s it. No meat, coffee or alcohol.
I wasn’t born in this country on purpose, I didn’t get to choose where I was born, I was just extremely lucky and blessed. It breaks my heart to know that other’s weren’t as fortunate to be able to live in such peace by absolute chance.
The money you give will help provide urgently needed food rations, healthcare, and education to help give Syrian refugees the strength they need to cope. It will also help many other refugees around the world to build safe, just and dignified lives, now and in the future. Thank you in advance for being so generous. It means so much to me, and you’ll be making a big difference to refugees in desperate need.
Donate what you can – change starts with the (wo)man in the mirror.
