Kids for Kids

KIDS FOR KIDS aims to help children living in remote villages in Darfur, Sudan who live lives of inexcusable hardship and to give them the chance of a better life. We seek to enable families to stay in their villages in the midst of the conflict by helping to improve their lives and livelihoods and lifting them out of poverty. Our long-term aim is to give Darfur a chance by sustaining villages as vibrant institutions - without this people living in the camps will have nothing to return to once peace is restored.
Children face starvation in Darfur now - urgent
 
Kids for Kids helps children and families in Darfur living in remote villages in the desert. The UN recently reported 30% of children are acutely malnourished. Many are starving now. We can help to stop this: Our simple grassroots projects - goat loans, donkeys, water from hand pumps, training midwives and first aid workers, providing blankets, mosquito nets, Kindergartens and more - lifts families out of desperate poverty and transforms the lives of whole communities. Please help. project reportread updates from the field
Water - the gift of life - for children in Darfur
 
As you read this, children in Darfur villages in Sudan are walking for hours across the desert in search of water. They are missing school, childhood, and are in danger of being attacked on their journey as violence increases in Darfur. There is water, but it is underground - if only families could afford a hand pump. The children at the International School in Brooklyn, New York, are determined to help. They are leading the way with their sponsored Walk for Water - Please will you help too? project reportread updates from the field
Goats and Donkeys Transform Lives in Darfur
 
In Darfur children are seriously malnourished. Drought, prolonged violence and soaring inflation are devastating lives. We are transforming lives - our key project, a goat loan gives milk to children and an income for their mothers to pay for medicines, food, schooling and emergencies. But we do much more, sustainable projects lifting families out of abject poverty, giving them a chance at last. Please can you help adopt 5 villages this year and help us change their lives long term? project reportread updates from the field
Kindergartens for Vulnerable Children in Darfur
 
Mothers in Darfur, busy with their daily tasks, have little time for active engagement with their small children. The lack of mental stimulation during these crucial formative years diminishes the development potential of the children forever. 98% of mothers in Darfur are illiterate. They begged us to help educate their children. Our first kindergarten opened in the village of Abu Nahla in December 2013; we opened 3 more in 2015 and are hoping to build 5 more in 2017! Can you help? project reportread updates from the field
Save Women and Babies from Dying During Birth
 
The baby in the picture is tiny and you would guess that she was a new born. She is not, she is 18 months old but malnutrition has stunted her growth. She will die without help. She and her mother survived childbirth only to face starvation. There is no health care in villages in Darfur. Our midwives save countless mothers and babies, and our goats give them essential nutrition. There is no malnutrition in the 81 Kids for Kids' villages. Please help us adopt more. project reportread updates from the field
Hope for children who have never had a home
 
Families in Darfur have fled their villages with nothing and now they want to leave the IDP camps to give a home and a future to their children. Visionary leaders in Kids for Kids Villages are welcoming these families, many of different tribes from their own, so they can rebuild a new life for their children. They are providing land to new families and helping to build huts, but cannot do more, and the families come with nothing. We are asking help to provide the basic essentials for survival. project reportread updates from the field
Urgent: Refugee Families Flee Famine - South Sudan
 
Millions are now facing famine and starvation in South Sudan and across East Africa. Many are fleeing to already poverty-stricken villages in Darfur where Kids for Kids is working efficiently and effectively with 82 villages to fight hunger & to bring clean water & health care with sustainable projects that can quickly be expanded to respond to this growing disaster. To help starving arrivals, we need more blankets, mosquito nets, cans for clean water, medicines, goats to provide milk & more
Eggs to feed hungry Grandmothers in Darfur
 
This Easter, please give a Chicken not an Egg! Give a chicken to a Grandmother in Darfur and she will be healthy. Whilst our Goat Loans work miracles for children, herding a flock is too much for frail older people to manage, and so Kids for Kids provides chickens - easy to look after and the eggs are a brilliant source of protein. Reports are coming through loud and clear - Chickens transform lives. Grandma Afaf said: "For the first time in months I am eating good food" project reportread updates from the field
Improving children's health in villages in Darfur
 
Providing blankets and mosquito nets to 200 poor families in villages in Darfur to reduce the risk of children dying from malaria and acute respiratory infections bought about by deadly mosquitoes and cold desert nights. In Darfur families struggle to provide even the most basic of items due to rising inflation and harsh living conditions. This project helps families to protect their offspring from the hazards of the desert. project reportread updates from the field
***Urgent Appeal*** Jerry Cans for water
 
Many families in the remote villages of Darfur have been forced to flee their homes in recent weeks. They have lost everything. They cannot even collect water. Please can you help by donating jerry cans urgently? People need a minimum of 15 litres a day for drinking, cooking and washing. Without a jerry can, collecting enough water to survive is a huge challenge. Imagine the thirst in somewhere as hot as Darfur? $10 buys 2 Jerry Cans and gets them to the people who need them. Thank You. project reportread updates from the field
