Kids for kids
Kids for Kids was founded 23 years ago by Patricia Parker OBE, after her first-hand experience of the terrible conditions in which children were living in Darfur. With continued fighting, inflation soaring and shortages of even the most basic of essentials, children are dying right now from starvation in Darfur. The UN has said that Sudan ‘is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world today’. Our sustainable projects have never been more needed. In our 110 villages hand pumps are working day and night to provide safe, clean water. Women expecting babies are crowding into our Kids for Kids villages because in everyone we have provided trained midwives. There is Goat’s milk for children to drink – the only source of protein. As soon as it is safe to do so, Emergency Aid will be distributed. Kids for Kids provides simple items that could be the difference between life or death – Jerry Cans, Double Blankets, Mosquito Nets, Farm Tools, and so much more.Select this charity
