KIDS FOR KIDS helps children the world has forgotten, children in Darfur, Sudan, who live lives of inexcusable and unimaginable hardship.
Kids for Kids adopts whole villages, lifting them out of abject poverty. We are different, because our projects are what people tell us will help them the most. By combining a range of simple grassroots projects we not only make an immediate difference to individual families - their children have milk to drink,a blanket to sleep under, a mosquito net to protect them from malaria - we are transforming the lives of the whole village, providing health care within reach, veterinary care and, most important of all, water near at hand.
KIDS FOR KIDS has already adopted 70 villages - over 350,000 people whose lives have been transformed long term - in one of the most remote and inaccessible regions of the world, and now we need to adopt SEVEN MORE. Children are hungry, thirsty and we know we can change their lives, with your help.
We don’t believe in charity, we believe in helping people to help themselves.
We also believe in making your money count and not wasting it on needless administration. Volunteers in Sudan and elsewhere in the world, help us to spend the maximum exactly where you want it to be spent - to help children who cannot help themselves. Founder Patricia Parker MBE says "I feel honoured when people donate their hard earned money because they trust us to do all we can to help children the world has forgotten - and I am not going to spend it on unnecessary administration."
URGENT APPEAL - Darfur: Water is urgently needed to stop children walking miles for every drop. "It is difficult to describe the absolute deprivation" says Patricia. "Three weeks ago some of our villages were attacked and people fled, leaving everything behind. They need help right now and most urgent of all are jerry cans to collect water. Longer term we must repair and install more handpumps, as many as possible. We all know what thirst is - but can you imagine having to walk for hours across the desert to collect every drop? You can name handpumps after your loved ones - a living memorial. Do contact me to learn more."
Families lost their homes and everything they owned. Can you help provide Jerry Cans now so they can at least have water?

KEY PROJECT: Our GOAT LOAN saves lives. We lend 6 goats to a family. There is milk immediately and then an increasing income as the little flock grows. After 2 years, 6 healthy kids are passed to another family in the same desperate need - and the loan goes on, and on. Your gift of a goat could be the best investment in the future you will ever make.

Education is the way out of poverty. Can you help by donating bricks so we can start to build another kindergarten in a remote village where mothers are begging for our help for their children?"

Children are struggling to survive in remote villages in Darfur because their mothers cannot afford to feed them. Children go to bed hungry, and wake up hungry. The creation of South Sudan has lead to soaring inflation. Violence has escalaated this year, out of sight of the world. Already this year over 50,000 people have fled their homes, losing everything they ever owned. In March a further 8,000 people fled their homes. We need basics - jerry cans, cooking utensils, blankets, mosquito nets. . Thankfully the harvest was better than last year in many areas, but not in the north of Darfur. "We already know that many families will not have anything to eat in the 'hungry months' this summer. "Can you help please?" says Patricia.

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,
Children's hair turns preternaturally pale from prolonged lack of protein - goat's milk is an essential source of protein, minerals and vitamins yet the price of goats has soared.
Please can you help us buy more goats? 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. 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.
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.
