In 2009, KinderUSA partnered with IBC in the Mardan district of Pakistan and responded to the violence that surrounded a number of the Internally Displaced Peoples (IDP) camps there. We provided education and psychosocial support for hundreds of children by installing playgrounds and supplying educational materials.
Additionally, in 2010, Kinder funded a program that delivered food such as rice, lentils and beans in the Punjab area of Pakistan to families affected by a devastating flood disaster in late 2010. We reached over 500 families for a six month period.
The project in Syria that allowed us to give IDP children winter clothes also allowed us to affect Syrian refugees within Turkey in the Gaziantep (Antep) region.
Over 5000 people in Africa, including a high number of internally displaced children, have benefitted from the construction of four invaluable wells supplying clean, safe drinking water. In 2014, KinderUSA and the Amoud Foundation worked together in order to build wells in Uganda and Somalia in areas where clean drinking water has been either non-existent or extremely difficult to collect. The construction of the wells has meant that the onerous task of water collection, which often falls to women and children, has been considerably lightened and the safer water has cut the risk of life-threatening water borne diseases.
