Founded in 1985 to assist children suffering from famine in Ethiopia, K.I.D.S. has grown and changed a great deal – but their mission remains the same. Within the first year of its founding, K.I.D.S. sent $600, 000 worth of clothes, shoes and toys to children in Ethiopia and to mudslide victims in South Africa.
From this beginning, they have grown into a global charity organization that helps to alleviate poverty among children and to help in relief efforts around the world following major disasters.
