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.

Mudoleine’s mom was killed in the 2010 Haitian earthquake and her dad was left unable to care for their eight children.  So Mudoleine’s dad made the heart breaking decision to take Mudoleine, and her brother Nolky, to the HTDC orphanage.  They were soon joined by their younger brother Noldy.

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

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

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

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

We’ll keep updating you about Mudoleine 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!

Jameson arrived at the HTDC orphanage when his mom moved to Port-au-Prince to work as a maid.  Although his mom works hard Jameson can’t live with her, so he stays at the orphanage.  Jameson loves to help with the cooking and he dreams of being a chef one day!

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

Without an education, Jameson’s future looked bleak. Without basic literacy and numeracy, he would almost certainly have been doomed to a life of poverty, and his dreams would have been forgotten.

But Jameson is lucky - he has you in his life.

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

Rose has had a difficult life in the past.  She was brought to the HTDC orphanage because she was mistreated by a family member.  Rose got help from the police, and the abuse stopped, but she couldn’t go home anymore.  Despite this trauma, Rose has adjusted well to her new home.

But with so many basic needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t provide Rose with the education she deserves.

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

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

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