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