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.

Resolve to make 2014 a year of giving

You can give them a safer 2014

We hope you had a Merry Christmas and thanks so much to everyone who has set up recurring donations following our email on the 20th!

Today, we’re looking back on 2013. It’s been a fantastic year. Thanks to you, Filipino community leaders have helped hundreds of community members prepare for disaster. More families than ever before are receiving texts telling them when they need to evacuate and more supplies are being stockpiled every day in preparation for the next flood.

Your investments have made all the difference for families like Mae’s. Because of you, Mae’s mom sleeps a little more soundly knowing that, if floods come in the night, she’ll be ready.

But while huge progress has been made in 2013, there are still too many families who haven’t received any training and who remain unprepared for the inevitable floods which affect their community. We also still need to stockpile more essential supplies – like food and drinking water – to ease suffering during and after floods.

This New Year, we hope you’ll resolve to help families like Mae’s prepare for disaster by setting up a monthly donation for 2014.

A meal costs just $.25, so your monthly gift of just $10 could feed 40 evacuees every month when floods come. When you set up your recurring donation before the ball drops and 2014 begins, GlobalGiving will match your gift.

If you’re not ready to commit to a monthly donation, your one-off donation, whatever its size, will be gratefully received.

Thanks so much, and we wish you a very Happy New Year!

Today, we’re looking back on 2013. It’s been a fantastic year. Thanks to you, students who needed extra help like Zach, Negline, and Betrand got the support they needed and passed their exams. We also welcomed new students like Diana who would be going without an education if not for your generosity.

We were able to change the lives of our students in 2013 because you chose to give. Thanks so much!

In 2014, we intend to keep supporting the students we currently have in school and admit as many more new students as we can. But we can’t do it without you

We hope that you’ll resolve to make 2014 a year of giving by setting up a monthly recurring donation. Giving just $20 a month in 2014 will fund six months of school for a child like Negline.

Even better, when you set up your recurring donation before the ball drops and 2014 begins, GlobalGiving will match your gift.

It’s been a tough Christmas for many in Tacloban, but thanks to you we’re well on our way to restarting the services that children like Shane so desperately need.

Your support means that Shane’s family – and survivors like them - know that the world hasn’t forgotten them. In other words, this Christmas, you gave them the gift of hope.

Recovery at the Aram learning studio is just beginning. We need to rewire the building, replace countless lost supplies, and buy new doors and windows to replace what the storm destroyed before the school can re-open.

This New Year, we hope you’ll resolve to help us reopen the Aram Learning Studio by setting up a recurring donation. Your monthly gift will help us give children with developmental Disabilities like Shane the help they need. When you set up your recurring donation before the ball drops, GlobalGiving will match your gift.
