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.

Gusline was just three when she was found wandering the streets alone after the earthquake. She was very traumatised by the circumstances surrounding her arrival at the orphanage, and for a long time she was quiet and ill.

The emotional scars began to heal but without healthy food, Gusline was still listless. She didn’t play or run around. She just wanted to be held.

Now - thanks to you - the orphanage staff can barely keep up with her!

Because of you, Gusline enjoys three nutritious meals every day - and we’ll be able to keep providing the food she needs to stay healthy and keep on playing.

Gusline has a bright future because you gave. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Gusline. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Gusline and all her friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage through this project’s parent page, Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again for making Gusline’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

Chinaidine’s mom was too poor to care for her daughter, and so made the sad decision to abandon her at the HTDC orphanage.   But with so many basic needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t provide Chinaidine with an education.

Without an education, Chinaidine’s future looked bleak. Without basic literacy and numeracy, she would almost certainly have been doomed to the same life of poverty as her mom.

But Chinaidine is lucky - she has you in her life.

Your fantastic generosity means that we’ll be able to keep Chinaidine in school and learning the skills she needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Chinaidine’s been doing really well in school, but if she needs extra help we’ll be there to get her the tutoring she needs.

We’ll be able to support Chinaidine because you chose to give. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Chinaidine. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Chinaidine and all her classmates through this project’s parent page, Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again, and very kind regards!
