The Ration Challenge


Could you live on that amount of food for a week? Every week for years? Millions of people have to.

One of the issues on this planet that breaks my heart more than others is the refugee's situation across the world. All of them who had to run away from their countries with nothing, because of local conflicts and war. On this mother day, I feel the even deeper pain of those mothers we have seen on those videos holding their babies and kids, trying to find a better life for them.

I do not like to post on social media about any issues unless I commit myself to do something about it. Either being climate change, refugees, racism, etc. So this year, in June, during "Refugee Week" I am going to take a stand by living for one week on the Ration Food that refugees have to live with in refugee camps.

Each day from June 16th to 23rd, I will eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee – just a small amount of rice, flour, lentils, chickpeas, beans, fish and oil.

The photo is the food they live on for one week (the same one I will have to live with).

You can help them (via my challenge) and sponsor me to do it (link below). The money we will raise will provide food, medicine, and education for refugees; and support the ongoing work of CWS to help vulnerable people rebuild their lives in safety.

Obviously, I am blessed to do this in a home, with heat, nice bed, clean water, and comfort. With loved ones around me. With an end to it in sight (1 week only). And yet I am expecting this challenge to be difficult.

I hope and pray you will make a donation to my challenge as all this money will be fully directed to help them. And that you will join me in this communion, this prayer, this challenge.

ALSO IF YOU FEEL Called to be in communion and prayer with me that week, you can also join the challenge and get a ration sent to you and fundraise. Would be special to be a group of friends doing this together.

My deep gratitude in advance to all of you,
Guillaume
