Joan Calcutt has now completed the ‘Ration Challenge’, to help raise money for, and draw attention to, the situation in refugee camps. Given the threat of catching the Covid virus in the overcrowded situations, the lack of hygienic facilities and food and medicine shortages, etc, the life of a refugee is more precarious than ever.
As Joan has done for a few years, she registered to represent the church’s JIM group in the Challenge. Her family and friends in both Ocean Grove UC and Barwon Heads UC have been very supportive, helping her to raise over $2700 this year for the work of Act for Peace.
Although the challenge is over, anyone who would like to contribute to Joan’s effort can do so online by clicking on the following link: https://actforpeace.rationchallenge.org.au/joan-calcutt
The money raised will help bring emergency food, hygiene kits and life-saving support to the people that need it most.
