Angela’s Cost of Refuge Challenge
This is a great example of a fundraising endeavour by Angela Gluck, a trustee of The Separated Child Foundation.
For 30 days, Angela ate and drank on just £2 a day.
Destitute asylum seekers in the UK only get £36.95 a week at the most—and that has to cover all they need: food and drink, toiletries, clothes and shoes, cleaning products and household items, fares, stamps and phone calls—everything. From talking to asylum seekers and from simple calculations, it’s easy to work out that there can’t be more than £2 a day to spend on food.
Below is an interview with Angela which describes what she was aiming to achieve and the reasons for this amazing challenge:
