Totnes Churches Help Children in Darfur
On Sunday 16th September, St John’s Church in Totnes held a service in aid of Kids for Kids at St Mary’s Church, welcoming Patricia Parker MBE, Founder and CEO, as guest speaker. A great supporter over the years, Liz Waterson, has encouraged St John’s to hold numerous collections for Kids for Kids and this weekend was particularly special. “It was beautiful” Patricia said. “Members of the Church and congregation read out the prayers from all corners of this beautiful historic church, creating a powerful atmosphere, and bringing together people to help change the lives of children in Darfur who are completely forgotten.”
It is truly perfect timing for St Mary’s and St John’s to announce their support for Kids for Kids. Children in Darfur are living through what locals call The Hungry Months because there is rain but no food. After suffering famine all year, there will still not be a harvest for a few more months, if there is one at all. We have been providing Urgent Need Packages for families who have been worst-hit by the famine to ensure that no child starves. Do take a moment to read the beautiful prayer below, written for Kids for Kids and the children of Darfur.
Funds raised will enable us to provide food immediately to families who have nothing at all to eat, as well as continue adopting new villages in Darfur and bringing our sustainable projects to more communities in need.
If your church is interested in supporting Kids for Kids during the Harvest Season, we would be very grateful. Do read more about The Hungry Months, and see our 2018 Harvest Appeal.
