New Year Update from Kids for Kids

By Sage Lancaster | Fundraising and Outreach Coordinator

You will be pleased to hear that 2020 has started well for Kids for Kids, as for the first time in a long while, Founder and CEO Patricia Parker MBE can again go to Darfur after the previous Government would not issue visas. A trip is being arranged for February.  It is going to be an important trip to see everything first hand and report back to you as we have already started work in our eight newly adopted villages, delivering all our integrated projects. 

Along with this exciting news we are also thrilled to have started construction on five new Kindergartens and three new Health Units. You may know that these are secondary projects, available to villages after they successfully run our key basic essentials projects for a number of years. Kindergartens are to be built in the villages of Lawabid, Majdoub (A), Kindro, Hillat Kharif, and Kulkul. Health Units will be in Dor Fazy, Mireikhis, and Kamala Kira. 

Having said all this, we are still extremely worried about conditions in Darfur. There is no magic wand to provide the infrastructure that is desperately needed, and soaring inflation and lack of vital essentials has led to more hardship. However, you will be happy to hear that we are getting ready to train new midwives in conjunction with the Ministry of Health from our eight villages adopted in 2019.  Volunteers are to be selected soon and the 14-month training program to follow will provide these brave and determined women with the knowledge and skills to make a measurable and impactful forever difference to the families in their villages. In fact, in October 2019 alone, our already trained and working midwives in 21 of our villages delivered 154 healthy babies. This simple fact shows just how essential our work is - what would have happened to these babies and their mothers without the midwives you have helped us to train? 

When everything is a priority, it is a real challenge to do the best thing possible for people in such need.   With your help over the coming year we can ensure that our sustainable projects that have proven immensely success over the almost 19 years of Kids for Kids, can keep on helping more families in more villages in 2020. The best thing you can do to support Kids for Kids this year?  Become a monthly donor! Thank you.

With all our best for the year ahead,

The Kids for Kids Team
