Ride for Rations is a fund-raising initiative that involves long-distance endurance non-competitive cycling. 2020 will be the 10th Anniversary of Ride for Rations (RfR). It will involve 2 days of cycling from Malaysia to Singapore. For those who would like to go a longer distance, a 3-day option is available.
Funds raised are transmitted to Sunlove Abode for Intellectually Infirmed Ltd, a registered charity. The funds are used to provide monthly food rations and breakfast rations to the needy identified by Sunlove. RfR 2020 aims to provide monthly food rations to at least 440 households and at least 200 breakfast rations for school-going children from April 2021 to March 2022. More families in these or other estates will be able to receive rations if sufficient funds are raised. Each package of breakfast rations costs $25.
The beneficiaries are households who reside in 1-room rental flats in Chai Chee, Hougang, Marsiling, Whampoa and Woodlands. They are families or individuals who long to have 3 square meals a day; who scrimp through the little if any means they have to meet their daily basic needs, who sorely are not getting sufficient nutrition due to the lack of proper food. Many of the beneficiaries are aged or have various health and medical issues and are in need of help.
