Anglican Missions would like to encourage you to support a new Christian World Service initiative.
Operation Refugee gives you a chance to give some help to refugees. The challenge is to live on the same rations as a Syrian refugee during Refugee Week which will be held from 16 to 20 June, and raise as much money as you can.
You are supplied with the rations and you sign up family and friends as sponsors. The rations are based on what a Syrian refugee receives living in a Lebanese refugee camp – just a small amount of rice, split peas, salt, fish, flour and oil.
CWS is wanting 90 people to register and do the Challenge with them. Their goal is to raise $55,000 to support refugees living in Lebanon and Jordan. Operation Refugee is a practical way to keep hope alive for families who want a better future.
