A smiling happy boy prepares for his new goats!
Donkeys are a vital lifeline to the people of Darfur at the best of times. The harsh environmental conditions people and families have to live with every day make life a struggle. The relentless heat of the sun, droughts in some areas, flooding in others. This is why we provide goats and donkeys to families. They provide necessary sustenance to hungry children in the form of goats milk, donkeys helping with everyday tasks such as collecting water or firewood. These animals help to lighten the load.
However, times have never been harder for the people of Darfur. Sudan has declared an economic emergency as inflation soars, reaching a staggering 167% in August and is still rising. The price of basic staples has gone through the roof. Everyone in Sudan is struggling but when disasters like this happen, it is often the most in need that are the ones hit the hardest.
In the midst of the disaster Kids for Kids has some happy news. Two of the recently adopted villages in Darfur, Abu Sinait, and Um Ajaja have just received their lifelines, new goats for the most in need! Smiling faces of the mothers and excitement of the children expresses their delight and what must be relief! This is what we accomplished with your help. So on behalf of the people who have already received their goats and donkeys, we thank you.
However, we must provide more goats to feed more starving children, we must provide more donkeys to share the hard work. Families have never been more in need. There are thousands more still waiting for help. We can not turn our backs on the people of Darfur - Kids for Kids is there for these people in the darkest of times - will you?
For $70 you can provide a single goat to a family or provide a little donkey that will help a family collect water for $95 but any amount no matter how small will go to the greatest need for the people of Darfur.
The goats have arrived at their new home!
