Last week, Patricia Parker, director of the organisation of Kids for Kids arrived in Sudan from Britain to resume humanitarian activities after years of expulsion by the former regime.

The local community welcomed Parker with appreciation and gratitude in Umjaal, and El Sayah in Mellit locality in North Darfur, and with drums and ululation.

The head of the steering committee for the Organisation of Kid for Kids and the director of the Rural Development Network, Adam Sabeel, stated that Parker is to carry out construction of health services and education for 100 villages in Darfur.

Sabeel explained that the Goat project is the main project that aims to provide five goats for each family as an income and they provide training for these families on how to maintain and the development of the project.

“The organisation has already distributed 36,000 goats to the local beneficiaries, and the total number of people who benefited from the project reached 550,000 from the targeted villages,” he said.

Sabeel explained that after the expulsion the organisation from North Darfur, Patricia committed herself to continue to provide services to these remote villages in Darfur. “We used to meet her outside Sudan for reporting, providing vision, and writing proposals. She has been providing us with support from abroad,” Sabeel concluded.
