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 Shane!

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

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

Children with developmental disabilities like Shane 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, Shane’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, Shane 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 Shane 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 Mae!

Her sign says 'thank you' in Filipino!

Thanks so much for support evacuees like Mae. Because of your generosity, we’ll be able to stockpile food for her in a purpose built evacuation centre.

That food will be available when the next flood comes and forces Mae and her family to leave their home. Evacuation will never be easy for Mae, but your generosity means that Mae and her family won’t go hungry.

We’ll send you updates about how your gift is changing the lives of Mae, her family, and families like them right here on GlobalGiving. Should you ever have any questions about how we’re using your donation, please don’t hesitate to email Emma@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

One last time, thanks so much for ensuring that Mae and her family won’t go hungry during floods.

Very kind regards,

Thanks so much for supporting Manoucheka

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

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

Because of you, we’ll be able to keep Manoucheka in school and learning the skills she needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Manoucheka’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 Manoucheka because you chose to give. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Manoucheka. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Manoucheka 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!
