The gift of hope for starving families in Darfur

This Christmas we have had a lot to be thankful for, but in Darfur children face a very different future.  Starvation is a real threat and village leaders report children malnourished in every village.  Thankfully, not in Kids for Kids' villages, thanks to your generosity.  We are now supporting 70 remote communities in Darfur where mothers know they can rely on the milk from our goats for their children.  Because of your support we were able to adopt five villages this year, and we are determined to adopt at least five more in 2015.   You can see from the photos here that the grassroots projects you are supporting are transforming lives, right now.  

Where we have planted drought resistant trees, these are now giving shade and bearing fruit.  Where you have donated goats, children have essential protein in their diet.  Where you have donated seed, families are able to plant crops. Our donkeys provide the only means of transport across the desert.  There are no roads.  Our first aid workers and village midwives save lives and prevent small problems from becoming catastrophes because there is no health care in any form in villages.  What a difference - desperate families now have hope of a brighter tomorrow - and you made this possible!  

All of these projects are 'a hand up, not a hand out'.  Local people are chosen by their community to receive training and run the projects, so you can be certain that everything you give goes a long, long way.  

Thank you for bringing hope to 70 villages!  Please will you help us to give more children hope in 2015
