International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)

At IDV we believe that to provide meaningful relief and reconstruction assistance to disaster affected communities around the world we have to do more than reconstruct buildings. We need to understand and address the factors that made a community vulnerable to the disaster in the first place. Our work will be organised with these factors in mind so we can effect change that far outlives our presence.

This project will provide a year of safe housing for fifteen year old Manoucheca. Manoucheca arrived at the HTDC orphanage in 2010 after her father died in the earthquake.

Despite her hardship, Manoucheca is a lovely, independent girl who takes very good care of her little brother. But without the orphanage to keep her safe, Manoucheca would be forced to fend for herself as a street-kid.

An Emergency Generator for Guintigian School

$390
Raised
Remaining
The Guintigian School is located roughly 45 minutes drive from Tacloban. It usually functions as a school but during typhoons it also serves as an emergency evacuation center for the community. The school provides a safe place during storms, but when the power goes down during typhoons the community is left in the dark for days. Being without power means not only being without light, but also without the ability to charge mobile phones and contact loved ones.

Raised
Remaining
Antonio is 74. He lives with his three grandchildren in a house made from a few sheets of tin and plywood perched on a riverbank. Antonio's family live in constant fear of heavy rains which cause the river to quickly burst its banks. When this happens Antonio's family can easily become trapped by the rising water. Without a rescue boat to evacuate them Antonio and his family could easily lose their lives in a major flood.
