Ambassadors’ Ball 2018 saves lives

Our fabulous Ambassadors’ Ball at the Hyatt Regency – The Churchill Hotel on 19th May was a sell-out and made a profit of an amazing £18,864!

We are so grateful to everyone who came on the night and helped make it such a success, as well as to all those who supported the Ball by donating prizes, sponsorship and advertising.  Every one of you made a difference.    Thank you too to the staff of The Churchill who looked after us wonderfully.

We are delighted to share some photos from the evening below.  Many more are available to buy online from  Antonia Peña, our lovely photographer, very generously donated her time again, and is now giving 30% of any photos you may buy to Kids for Kids – so do see how beautiful everyone looked!

Everything we raised from the Ball is helping children and families in Darfur who are facing starvation this year. Thanks to everyone who supported the Ball we are going to be able to save 1,284 children (and their animals) from the prospect of starvation from now until the rains come, PLUS we will be providing each of their families with a sack of seed, so they will have something to plant next year.   We always try to prevent disasters – and without seed,  yet more children will face starvation next year.   It is an horrific scenario.  Depending on the donations we receive, we are also planning to provide even more goats, so there is milk/protein for the children.  With soaring inflation and the devaluation of the Sudanese pound people cannot afford protein in any other form.

Our Ambassadors’ Ball is helping us make a great difference to so many, but, sadly, we still have a long way to go to prevent starvation in Darfur over the coming months.  Our initial target is to give help to 3,000 families, so your support to help us reach this is needed more than ever.  Each ‘package’ of flour, supplementary food for animals and a goat costs £88.   Seed for planting is an additional £15.   You can donate to our Urgent Need Appeal here.

Our wonderful Ball sold out really early this year so a date for your diary – Saturday 8th June 2019!
