Every couple of years, our community is hit with severe flooding or drought that affects hundreds of people. Whether it is houses falling down, or crops dying from lack of rain, natural disasters are devastating to any community.
The road to our community is washed out by rain whenever a flood happens, and sometimes even just from regular rainfall. When this happens, only motorcycles and 4x4 vehicles can get in. The large trucks from global NGO’s often can’t navigate the narrow places. This means, since we are already based in the area, we are the first on the scene when disaster strikes. We are able to relieve the victims of disaster with basic emergency goods including blankets, water treatment solutions, food and medical care.
Often times, the hardest hit are the widows in the community. They tend to be marginalized and struggle to care for their own families. They are also the ones that tend to take in and care for orphaned children in the villages. When their house falls down, not only are they affect, but so are all the children that are dependent on them for shelter. In steps Kids’ World with the help of donors like you and other generous organizations. We are able to support the widows and orphans while they get their lives stabilized and help them also with new stable, storm resistant housing.
We are so grateful to all who stepped up and donated to make these projects possible. We are also grateful to the people of our community who have donated their time and labour to build houses for the widows of our community.
New houses for widows in our village are one of the exciting relief project which we are conducting
