The only organisation created to help children struggling to survive in remote villages in Darfur, Sudan.
Welcome to Kids For Kids!

Act now to help children
in villages in Darfur

 

KIDS FOR KIDS helps children the world has forgotten, children in Darfur, Sudan, who live lives of inexcusable and unimaginable hardship.

Urgent appeal for help - The rains have started late in some regions of Darfur. Millet,the staple crop for every family, needs 3 months to grow. I have been warned that there will not be enough time before the sun becomes too hot, for the millet to produce a harvest. Sorghum is an alternative, which grows more quickly. Sorghum seeds are urgently needed if people are going to have enough to eat next year. Millet stalks are used for building the walls of huts and for fencing so that too will be a problem in 2015. My immediate plan is to provide 3 kgs of Sorhum seed for families in five of our most vulnerable villages in the far north of Darfur. 3 kgs costs £4.00 ($6.48) plus transport per family. We need to help as many families as possible before it is too late We have to provide the seed urgently. Can you help please? If you donate on line please will you send me an email marked SORGHUM SEED?

Small Change = Big Changes when you have so little

Children are starving in the villages of Darfur yet the world is doing nothing about it. The creation of South Sudan and the loss of the revenue from oil has caused soaring inflation in Sudan. "Children go to bed hungry, and wake up hungry. Mothers cannot feed their children. They need urgent help if the children in villages are to survive this year" said Patricia Parker MBE, Founder of Kids for Kids. "We must do something, and quickly, if we are going to save children's lives."

DONATE NOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Kids for Kids adopts whole villages, lifting them out of abject poverty. Our help is immediate - the loan of 6 little goats gives the children urgently needed goat's milk - protein minerals and vitamins which make a dramatic difference not just immediately, but for their long term health. Water is urgently needed to stop children walking miles for every drop. There is no health care in villages. "It is difficult to describe the absolute deprivation" says Patricia. "We urgently need help to help five villages right now. We must train more midwives and first aid workers if we are to stop children dyiing. And if they are to have a chance we need to start them on the road to education. Can you help by donating bricks so we can start to build our second kindergarten?"

Buy a Brick and Build the Future

Kids for Kids' projects are key to a better future. We are different. Because we recognise that it takes more than one thing to lift a family out of abject poverty and give them a foot on the ladder to a better future, we support a range of grass roots projects including health care, farming techniques, provision of water, and environmental improvements.

Key to our help is our Goat Loan Project. We don't just hand out goats: we lend 6 goats to a family so that the children have milk, often for the first time in their lives. After 2 years they pass on 6 offspring to another family. And so on. The donation of just one goat transforms many lives.

Children's hair turns preternaturally blonde from prolonged lack of protein - goat's milk is an essential source of protein, minerals and vitamins yet the price of goats has soared to nearly £40 an impossible amount for a mother to pay.

Please can you help us buy more goats urgently? Our Goat Loans have

been called the most effective Microfinance scheme ever.

Kids for Kids is the only organisation created to help the children of Darfur, living out of sight of the world in the remote villages.

Children are living in conditions which are beyond poverty. Even small children walk miles across the desert for every drop of water. They drink water that is heavily polluted and leads to life threatening illnesses. Yet noone is helping. The main aid agencies are no longer there. Foreigners do not go because it is dangerous. Children are in desperate need. Please help us to change their lives. We are showing it can be done. Every penny makes a difference in Darfur.

Small change = Big changes

The sun scorches the sand to a searing heat yet countless children have no shoes to wear. Their mothers have no hope of helping them. Children have never seen a toy, have no books, no bed, not even a blanket. They have little chance of education. Everything has to be paid for. There is no health care in the villages. There are no roads, no transport - you carry your child in your arms to a hospital, where there is no anaesthetic and where you have to pay for treatment - but you have no money.

We don’t believe in charity, we believe in helping people to help themselves.

THE GIFT OF A GOAT IS A GIFT OF LIFE - FOR LIFE

Patricia Parker MBE, Founder, says: "It is difficult to describe how desperate the lives of the children of Darfur are. It has never been so hard to raise funds to help them. When did you last see Darfur on television, or read about it in the papers? The world has forgotten Darfur are parents are in despair as they watch their children fade before their eyes. Please will you help?"

1 goat = £38 1 donkey = £50

1 goat = health for a child

1 donkey = a life line when there is no other transport
