Families fleeing famine and fighting in South Sudan have been heading to Darfur, their nearerst neighbour. Because of ongoing violence in South Darfur many families have travelled north and arrived in North Darfur. This is where Kids for Kids has been adopting villages for the past 16 years, transforming the lives of children and lifting whole communities out of abject poverty and giiving them a chance of a better future. Many families have taken refuge in our villages. "I feel so humble that people have opened their doors to these poor families" said Patricia Parker MBE Founder of Kids for Kids. "Many of our villages have already more than doubled in size thanks to our handpumps, the health care we provide for both humans and animals and all the other projects we introduce, from goat loans to blankets and mosquito nets and much more".
Amira's little family arrived last month in Abu Digeise. They were destitute, the children bare foot. "We have a home at last" said Amira "and my children are even able to go to school. I had despaired. It is hard to describe walking each long day, not knowing where you are going or if there will be any help anywhere. In South Sudan we survived on water lilies when we had nothing to eat. Now my children have assida and the villagers are helping us. Perhaps now my children can sleep without nightmares."
Kids for Kids is doing all we can to provide the basic essentials for every family taking refuge in our villages. If you can help we would be so grateful.
