Life is unimaginably hard for grandparents in Darfur. Often they have lost their children, and many have their orphaned grandchildren to look after too. Life is tough in a community where everyone eats what they grow and the harvests have been poor. If there is no extended family to help, older people struggle to forage for food, many become weak with hunger and will starve if their neighbours cannot help them. Kids for Kids’s new Chickens Project is a lifeline! With your help we can provide three healthy chickens and a cockerel to help frail and elderly people – just £15! The difference it makes to have eggs to eat, from chickens that are easy to look after, is incredible.
