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.

Like many of the children at HTDC, Wilson was underweight when he arrived at the orphanage. Food prices are high in Port au Prince, and Wilson’s grandparents simply couldn’t afford to feed him.

Wilson’s grandparents hoped the orphanage could feed him, but with so many other hungry mouths to feed, the orphanage also struggled from day to day.

Now - thanks to you - Wilson enjoys three nutritious meals every day - and we’ll be able to keep providing the food he needs to stay healthy and keep on playing.

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

We’ll keep updating you about Wilson and all his 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 Emma@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again for giving Wilson a bright future, and our warmest regards!

Chanini was one of ten kids cared for by her grandmother when the Haitian earthquake struck.  Her grandmother couldn’t afford to send Chanini to school so she asked the HTDC orphanage to care for her.

But with so many other needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t provide Chanini with an education either.

Without an education, Chanini’s future looked bleak. Without basic literacy and numeracy, she would almost certainly been doomed to a life of poverty.

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

Your fantastic generosity means that we’ll be able to keep Chanini in school and learning the skills she needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Chanini’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 Chanini because you chose to give. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Chanini. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Chanini 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 Emma@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again, and very kind regards!

We can’t believe that you’ve paid for Julson’s education for a year!  Julson loves to dance to reggae but he loves learning English at EIM more.

Thanks to you, Julson will be able to keep learning the skills he needs to find dignified, living wage employment, escape poverty, and provide for his family.  He works hard in class and is optimistic he’ll move into EIM’s Intermediate class next year.

There are so many ways that you could have spent your hard earned money, but you chose to support Julson. Thanks so much!

To let you know how your donation is changing lives, we’ll send you regular updates through this project’s parent project Change Lives With English Education. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email Emma@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

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