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 helping Vince!

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

We’d like to thank you for your support of Vince and children like him.

Children with developmental disabilities like Vince are particularly vulnerable after a disaster. They are less able to cope with change and meet their own needs. Many are unable to wait with their parents in the long lines required to receive aid. This can force parents to make the heart-breaking choice between looking after their special needs child or going out to collect much needed aid.

Thanks to you, Vince’s parents won’t have to make that choice. We’ll use your gift to reopen the Aram Learning Studio. When the school is open once again, Vince will be able to spend his days learning and getting the therapy he so desperately needs. Thanks so much!

We’ll keep updating you on Vince and his classmates right here on GlobalGiving. 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!

Thanks so much for supporting Nene!

Thanks so much for your help!
Thanks so much for your help!

We’d like to thank you for your support of Nene and survivors like her.

Because of you, we’ll be able to help Nene get on the road to recovery. Not only will your gift help us meet survivors immediate needs - like medical care, food, and drinking water - it will also help Nene and others like her restart their businesses.

We’re committed to staying Tacloban for as long as survivors like Nene need us, but without your generosity we would be helpless. Thanks so much!

We’ll keep updating you about Nene and survivors like her right here on GlobalGiving. 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!
