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 the same food that is distributed to refugees. You may be shocked – it’s not much for a week!
Just a small amount of rice, flour, lentils, chickpeas, beans, fish and oil. And only water to drink. That’s it!
Are you vegetarian or vegan? No problem – we’ll remove the sardines from your pack and you can eat an alternative protein like tofu.
If you work hard on your fundraising, you’ll be able to ‘earn’ extra ingredients – for example, a spice or flavoring 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.
