This project will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by providing soap to families living in the rural villages of Darfur, Sudan where there is no healthcare. Washing properly with soap and water works as soap breaks down the structure of the virus. There are 100 Kids for Kids villages with an average of 225 families in each - but over 900 villages in Darfur that need help too. Please will you help us save lives today?
No one is helping people in the remote villages of Darfur, Sudan to prepare for COVID-19. Water is scarce and people are malnourished and struggling to feed themselves each day: there will be very little chance of survival if the virus reaches villages. The Government of Sudan is targeting towns and markets to inform people of the dangers of COVID-19 and how to prevent it - but their message will not reach remote villages. There is no health care in the villages so prevention is their only hope.
The funds raised from this Microproject will enable Kids for Kids to provide soap and information about how to prevent COVID-19 to people in remote villages of Darfur, Sudan. It costs just $25/20 to provide five bars of soap for ten families, and an illustrated leaflet for each, showing how to wash their hands properly. By providing these items we can save countless lives. Please will you help?
Providing short-term emergency help to prevent COVID-19 in Darfur right now, will save lives. Kids for Kids is not an emergency aid organisation, but when no one else is helping, we must. Saving lives right now, together with continuing to implement all our other long-term sustainable projects including building clean water handpumps and loaning goats for milk, will help lift families out of poverty for good.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Water - the gift of life - for children in Darfur. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
