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.

A Month of Meals Thanks to You!

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

Wow! We can’t believe that you funding an entire month of meals for the 27 children living at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage with just a few clicks and your amazing generosity.

Because of you, we’ll be able to put nutritious food on all 27 kids’ plates. That means that kids like Medjina will have the nutrition they need to stay healthy, keep learning and grow up strong.

Medjina’s future didn’t look bright when she was born. From day one her family couldn’t provide for her, and they left her at the orphanage when she was just a few months old. She was malnourished and sick, and no one was sure if she would survive. But she did.

Today, Medjina will keep beating the odds because you chose to give. She’ll start school soon, and her learning will be fuelled by you generosity. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Medjina and all her friends through this project’s parent page, “Provide a Safe home for Haitian Orphans”.

Thanks again for making these kids’ Christmas bright, and our warmest regards!

Thanks so much for Supporting Germina

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

Thanks so much for providing the funds we need to keep Germina in a safe home, eating healthy, and seeing a doctor when she’s sick! Because of you, we’ll be able to keep Germina growing up with all her friends at the orphanage. She’s a lovely, bright baby, and we love watching her grow.

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

We’ll keep updating you about Germina and all her friends through this project’s parent page, “Provide a Safe home for Haitian Orphans”.

Thanks again for making Germina’s Christmas bright, and our warmest regards!

A Year of School Thanks to You!

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

Wow! We can’t believe that you funded an entire year of school for Carol with just a few clicks and your amazing generosity.

Because of you, we’ll be able to keep Carol in school and learning the skills she needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Carol’s been doing really well in school – she hasn’t needed even one hour of extra help yet! But if she does, we’ll be there, ready to get her the tutoring she needs.

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

We’ll keep updating you about Carol and all her classmates through this project’s parent page, Break the Cycle of Poverty with Education.

Thanks again for making Carol’s Christmas bright, and our warmest regards!
