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

Thanks for helping them have a Merry Christmas!

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

Today, we’re looking back on 2013. It’s been a fantastic year. Thanks to donors worldwide, we gave the orphanage’s existing kids the education, food, safe home, and enriching activities they need to grow into tomorrow’s leaders. In fact, the year went so well we were  able to welcome three new children.

Those new kids, like Kristelle, had an incredibly difficult 2013. But thanks to our global network of supporters just like you, they have a safe, loving home – and they’ve had a Merry Christmas completely with a visit from Santa and a Turkey dinner.

Even better, the the orphanage has been able to launch a business selling eggs! Starting the orphanage’s chicken business is a huge step, and egg sales will start soon.

But we still don’t have the funding we need to launch the orphanage’s bus business. Without the bus business, the orphanage will remain predominantly reliant on international aid.

This New Year, we hope you’ll resolve to help us give kids like Kristelle a secure future by setting up a monthly donation for 2014. 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, 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.

It’s been a tough Christmas for many in Tacloban, but thanks to you we’ve been able to help survivors like Virginia get on the road to recovery.  Virginia is a midwife, and she was delivering babies in the rain before you funded emergency shelter for her.

Your support means that survivors like Virginia know that the world hasn’t forgotten them. This Christmas, your donations gave them the gift of hope. Thanks so much!

But while we’re delighted by what we’ve achieved to date, recovery is just beginning. In 2014 we’re looking at home building, on-going support to help survivors access medical care, support for schools in Tacloban, and much more.

We are ready to help hundreds more like Virginia in the New Year, but we can’t do it without you.

This New Year, we hope you’ll resolve to help us rebuild communities affected by the strongest Tyhoon ever to make landfall by setting up a recurring donation. Your monthly gift will help affected families rebuild homes, schools, and lives. When you set up your recurring donation before the ball drops and 2014 begins, GlobalGiving will match your gift.
