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.

Your Amazing Support

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

We can’t believe that you’ve paid for Gilbert’s education for a year! As one of our eldest students Gilbert admits he has to study twice as hard to keep up.  However, due to his hard work and near perfect attendance record he’s already doing great in his studies.  

Thanks to you, Gilbert will be able to keep developing the skills he needs to stay in dignified, living wage employment, escape poverty, and provide for his family.

There are so many ways that you could have spent your hard earned money, but you chose to support Gilbert. 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 Gilbert’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

Like many of the children at HTDC, Kristelle was underweight when she arrived at the orphanage. Food prices are high in Port au Prince, and after Kristelle’s mom left her dad simply couldn’t afford to feed her anymore.

Although it made him very sad Kristelle’s dad left her in the care of the orphanage but they also struggled to provide the food she needed.

Now, thanks to you, Kristelle 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.

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

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

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

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.
