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.

Why Water?

Water is desperately needed in Darfur, and children are walking miles each day for every drop.

 

Hand Pumps for water – life changing!

Did you know?  One of the largest aquifers in Africa is right here underneath Darfur.  You just have to be able to afford to install a pump.  Every year, when Kids for Kids adopts new villages, one of the first things we do is commission a geophysical survey to work out where best to install the pumps. Can you imagine the difference this makes?  Instead of walking for hours in the scorching heat every day for water, children can go to school and mothers can work to earn an income for the family.  In some villages people have even managed to grow vegetables for the first time.
