Our “Trees of Life” really do Save Lives!

With Darfur being at the forefront of global warming and temperatures soaring to over 50 degrees in the summer months, all surface water evaporates by February each year, leaving the land parched and scorched.  Land that was green with trees and water early last century is now a desert for most of the year.    For the past 17 years, Kids for Kids has been planting drought-resistant trees in an effort to improve the environment for the long-term and hold back the Sahara which is creeping south inexorably. In 2007 we were the first organization to experiment with reintroducing the Baobab tree to Darfur. Baobabs now transform the landscape in our villages and save the lives of starving children. Baobabs can live up to 5,000 years, reach up to 30 metres high and grow up to an enormous 50 metres in circumference. They can provide shelter, food and water for families and their animals, and during the rainy season, they absorb and store water in their vast trunks, enabling them to produce a nutrient-dense fruit in the dry season when Read more…

Eid al-Fitr – Donate your Zakat and Sadaqah and Save Lives

To celebrate Ramadan this year, donate your Zakat before Eid al-Fitr or Sadaqah and give a Goat in honour of a loved one and save a child’s life in Darfur. It is a real time of need in Darfur. The current violence has decimated Sudan, and nowhere worse than in Darfur.  Today the regional capital of North Darfur, El Fasher itself, is under attack.  Across the whole of Sudan there is a massive failure of telecommunications and internet services.  The UN reports that “the complete loss of communications across Sudan hinders all efforts to coordinate the delivery of humanitarian aid, which is urgently and vitally needed by more than 25 million Sudanese”.  The country is on its knees.  Over 10 million people have lost everything and are homeless.  The UN has said that Sudan ‘is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world today’.  Children are dying right now from starvation in Darfur. Donate your Zakat before Eid or Sadaqah: Give a Goat and receive a personalised Gift Certificate for a loved one. We lend families 5 Goats so mothers can give Read more…

Hunt opened the celebration, which welcomed long-term supporters of the charity, by saying: “This is an amazing and wonderful cause.
