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 supporting Gusline!

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

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

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

We’ll keep updating you about Gusline 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!

Resolve to make 2014 a year of giving

They had a Merry Christmas thanks to you!

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

Today, we’re looking back on 2013. Thanks to you, we not only gave the orphanage’s existing kids the education, food, safe home, and enriching activities they need to grow into tomorrow’s leaders – we also welcomed three new children.

Those new kids, like Kristelle, had an incredibly difficult 2013. But, thanks to you, today they have a loving home and, last week, they had a Merry Christmas complete with a turkey dinner and a visit from Santa.

In 2014, we intend to keep supporting the kids at the HTDC orphanage and welcome more homeless kids, but we can’t do it without you.

This New Year, 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 will fund a child’s education for the entire year.

Even better, 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!

The boats you fund keep kids like them safe

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, more community based rescue teams than ever before have rescue boats. That means that more families like Erica Mae’s are protected when flood waters rise.

The boats you helped fund proved themselves during the August floods, when dozens of families reached safety in boats your donations made possible. Thanks so much for what you’ve given.

But while huge progress has been made in 2013, there are still too many families living in areas where the local rescue team doesn’t have a boat. We need to build boats for those teams urgently, and you can help us kick start construction.

This New Year, we hope you’ll resolve to help us build life-saving rescue boats by setting up a recurring donation for 2014. When you set up your recurring donation before the ball drops, GlobalGiving will match your gift.
