The Magic of Soap in a Time of Covid

Soap Means Hope for Families in Darfur
Soap Means Hope for Families in Darfur

Sometimes it is the smallest thing that makes the biggest difference. In normal times, we are focused on somewhat "grand" but sustainable plans.  Training healthcare workers, digging wells for handpumps, building kindergartens or walking a herd of life-changing goats into a village -- all are days for celebration.

But now it is the new normal, even in the remote villages of Darfur.  And right now a simple bar of soap is life-saving.

Normally, Kids for Kids projects help the poorest of the poor build their way out of grinding poverty through tools to earn a living and feed their families.  And we are continuing with what we can for our regular projects.

But in this new normal, we had the chance to get a truck load of simple soap out to Darfur and now we have to pay for it. We jumped in with both feet and delivered over 466,000 bars of soap to 105 villages.  We have empowered women to have an ounce of control over keeping their children alive in these most difficult times. Simple instructions for proper handwashing came with the soap, so that it might be effective and lifesaving.

While we work to cover the cost of the soap, we are still building 5 kindergartens this year -- for education is the way out of poverty. We are training families to care for and grow their goat herds so there will be milk for children and enough sometimes to sell -- a livelihood that means perhaps mothers can afford a mosquito net or warm blanket for a cold desert night or farm tools for a better harvest.

Giving women in the villages of Darfur the tools to bring their families out of poverty is such a basic, successful and sustainable processes.  And now a simple bar of soap makes all the difference. We so appreciate your continued support for the children of Darfur. We couldn't do it without you.
