Appeal for Help as Floods Strike Darfur and Inflation Soars
The people of Darfur are struggling to feed their families as food prices soar. The Sudanese economy is in crisis, with inflation increasing from 144% in July to a massive 167% in August. The Sudanese Government has declared an economic state of emergency.
Soaring prices mean that people in Darfur are unable to afford to buy basic staples to feed their families. At the same time recent floods have washed away thousands of homes, leaving people homeless. All deliveries to the area are disrupted. The hardship families are facing every day is unimaginable.
Widespread flooding means that moquitoes are breeding frighteningly fast so that malaria is on the rise. Children already suffering from malnutrition are even more at risk – the situation is becoming more dire every day. Meanwhile, as in the rest of the world, COVID-19 continues to spread.
We are calling on our supporters to help by donating to Kids to Kids to support families through this difficult time.
Donate now for the greatest need and your donation will be used where it is most needed in Darfur today!
