Act for Peace Ration Challenge
Refugees were already living a nightmare and now, as a result of the pandemic, many could starve to death.
Year 6 Trist House student, Davin Weerasinghe will be participating in a Ration Challenge, to raise money that will help save lives now - providing emergency food, hygiene kits and life-saving support to the people hit hardest by this crisis.
Davin explained the challenge “I will be only consuming exactly the same food, in almost exactly the same quantities, that are consumed by refugees in urban refugee camps. This will happen from the moment I wake up on 14 September, to when I go to bed on 16 September, I will drink only water and eat just the rations.”
This year in Australia so far, $1,492,411 has been raised - enough to feed 4,783 refugees for a year.
