Refugee Challenge 2017/18

Our pledge to refugees

Syria continues to dominate the news, a war that is now 6 years old (this weekend) has seen literally millions of people displaced from their homes, losing their families and entering a world of uncertainty. The number of Syrian refugees has now passed 5 million, many of whom are living in Jordan, Greece and Turkey.

Driven from their lands

We have been working with 3 incredible charities working on the ground in Jordan, Greece and Turkey and aim to inspire people from around the world to visit, raise awareness of the current issues and solutions offered and raise funds to support the efforts of the thousands of people working tirelessly in grass roots projects to help Syrian people in these places.

Raising £1m over the next 18 months

We aim to raise £1,000,000 to support grass roots projects working on the ground. We will distribute as much of the funds as possible before your challenge event and we will spend time with the communities to see first hand the impact your fundraising has made. Our goal is to build awareness of the scale of the problem and give supporters a first hand account of the issues face in Jordan during our visit to further raise exposure and funds for the projects and charities.
