Kids for Kids is appealing for emergency funding to help families without any food, water and basic supplies in Darfur, Sudan. Kids for Kids is the only organization, working from the regional capital El Fasher helping children in remote villages. Emergency funding is essential to help provide for thousands of families in desperate need of food, water, shelter and medical care. Our team is not evacuating. We are staying in Darfur & our established network will get help to those in need.
We are seeking emergency help for families who are desperately short of food and water. They dare not leave their homes whilst fighting rages around them - battles have broken out across Darfur, not just in Khartoum. Children are always the first to suffer when fighting erupts. The situation in Darfur has exacerbated an already dire situation where shortages across the country have led to many families struggling to feed their children.
Thankfully, families living in the 110 villages we have already supported through Kids for Kids will have a better chance of survival. We are calling for financial help for the Greatest Need so that we can respond wherever and whatever it is people need. We do not rely on international staff, whom other organisations have had to evacuate. Supporting Kids for Kids' network of community volunteers will get help to the villages of Darfur in Sudan.
By providing critical emergency aid, with food packs, clean water jugs and medicines, we can prevent starvation and keep people safe in their villages holding back a new tide of refugees. The fighting will stop--and the people you help will be back up on their feet, having not lost their homes and families.
