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 Life-Changing Holiday Gifts

Thanks for helping them stay safe in 2014
Thanks for helping them stay safe in 2014

We’d like to extend a warm thank you for your generosity! All together, we’ve raised $3,783 to help Banaba resist and recover from disaster right here on GlobalGiving.

Because of your generosity, we’ll be able to improve the evacuation centre so that Ryan and David will have a safe place to weather storms. 

Beyond simply giving them shelter, your gift will help the boys’ parents access livelihoods and poverty reduction programmes. It will be a long process, but these projects represent the opportunity for the family to escape poverty and move to safer housing.

You’ve started dozens of families on the road to self-sufficiency. Thanks so much!

We’ll post updates on the school’s growth right here on GlobalGiving – so keep checking back.

As always, if you ever have any questions about how we’re using your donation please don’t hesitate to email Emma@IDVolunteers.org. I would love to hear from you!

Thanks again, and very kind regards.

Because of your donations, we’ll be able to help Banaba prepare for disaster. That means that families like Sherwin’s will have food stockpiled to help them through evacuation, will receive training on how to prepare for floods, and trained volunteers will be on hand to help them when the waters rise.

These preparations are life-saving – and they wouldn’t be possible without you. Thanks so much!

Your Life-Changing Holiday Gifts

We’d like to extend a warm thank you for your generosity! Together, you’ve given a fantastic $1,012 this holiday season.

 Because of your donations, we’ll be able to build rescue boats, and that means that more families like Erica Mae’s will sleep soundly knowing that, if floods come, someone will be there to look out for them.

In addition to building boats, we’ll also use your gifts to train more community disaster response team members and invest in much needed life-saving equipment like life-vests and flotation devices.

Together, these investments will protect the most vulnerable during the annual floods which affect Banaba – and they wouldn’t be possible without your generosity. Thanks so much!
