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.

Thanks so much for supporting Gusline!

You
You're amazing!

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

Because of you, we’ll be able to keep Gusline in school and learning the skills she needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Gusline’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 Gusline because you chose to give. 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 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!

Nathaelle wants to thank you!

Your support is changing her life
Your support is changing her life

Thanks to your extraordinary generosity, the future at HTDC looks bright.

None of the children is more aware of the difference you’ve made in their lives than Nathaelle because she was the very first child taken in by the orphanage.

Nathaelle was abandoned in 1999 when she was just a few months old. At that point the HTDC orphanage didn’t formally exist. The orphanage’s founder, Denise, heard about Nathaelle’s plight and realised she couldn’t leave the baby to fend for herself. HTDC was born when Denise took Nathaelle in.

Nathaelle has been through massive ups and downs with the orphanage. Sometimes, before the earthquake, things were ok. Other months, they were short of food and she couldn’t go to school.

As one of the oldest children at the orphanage, when the earthquake struck she helped the adults care for the younger children through incredibly difficult circumstances. Living in tents, with no idea where the next meal was coming from, Nathaelle had to grow up fast.

Today, thanks to you, things are different. Because you chose to give, Nathaelle doesn’t have to look after the younger kids and worry about finding the next meal. Instead, she’s doing what all talented young women should be doing – planning her future. She hopes to be a nurse one day.

But, as you know, Nathaelle and all the children at the orphanage still face challenges. We need to fund their education, health care, nutritious food and education. It’s a big job, but happily GlobalGiving is here to help.

One July 16th, GlobalGiving will match that your gift by 50%. This means that if you give $50, GlobalGiving will top up your donation to $75.

That makes the 16th a very exciting day
