School children put on rations for refugees

Schoolchildren and teachers are being invited to eat like a refugee during the week leading up to World Refugee day (June 14-19); get sponsored; and raise much-needed funds to help children and families threatened by conflict and disaster around the world.

Every student registered by their teacher will receive a ration pack in the mail, containing the same rations, in the same quantities, as those distributed to Syrian refugees in camps in Jordan – just a small amount of rice, beans, chickpeas, lentils, fish, oil and flour.

Since 2018, the Ration Challenge schools’ program established by Act for Peace has raised more than $1 million.
