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 for stopping Mudoleine going hungry

On behalf of Mudoleine, "Thank You" so much!
On behalf of Mudoleine, "Thank You" so much!

Thanks so much for stopping Mudoleine from going hungry.

Mudoleine’s mom was killed in the 2010 Haitian earthquake and her dad was left unable to care for their eight children. So Mudoleine’s dad made the heartbreaking decision to take Mudoleine, and her brother Nolky, to the HTDC orphanage. They were soon joined by their younger brother Noldy.

Mudoleine’s dad hoped the orphanage could feed her, but with so many other hungry mouths to feed, the orphanage also struggled from day to day.

Without healthy food, Mudoleine was listless. She didn’t play or run around. But now - thanks to you - the orphanage staff can barely keep up with her!

Because of you, Mudoleine now enjoys three nutritious meals every day - and we’ll be able to keep providing the food she needs to stay healthy and keep on growing.

Mudoleine has a bright future because you gave. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Mudoleine. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Mudoleine and all her friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage 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 Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again for making Mudoleine’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

Thanks for keeping a roof over Nolson's head

On behalf of Nolson, "Thank You" so much!
On behalf of Nolson, "Thank You" so much!

Thanks so much for helping to provide a safe home for Nolson.

Nolson’s dad died in the 2010 earthquake, leaving his mom to look after ten children. She couldn't provide for them all, so she abandoned Nolson and two of his brothers at the HTDC orphanage.

Nolson’s mom hoped the orphanage could keep a roof over his head, but safe houses large enough for all the kids are very expensive in Port-au-Prince. The orphanage can’t afford to pay it’s own rent and, without your help, Nolson was in danger of becoming a homeless street-kid.

But now, because of you, Nolson will continue to have a safe home. Your donations will help pay the rent and provide caregivers, water and electricity for Nolson for a year*.

Nolson has a bright future because you gave. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Nolson. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Nolson and all his friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage 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 Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again for making Nolson’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

*Please note, that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Your donations to this project will cover Nolson’s share of the costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.

Thanks for keeping Rose in school

On behalf of Rose, "Thank You" so much!
On behalf of Rose, "Thank You" so much!

Thanks so much for helping to provide a year* of school for Rose.

Thirteen year old Rose had a difficult life in the past. She was brought to the HTDC orphanage because she was mistreated by a family member. Rose got help from the police, and the abuse stopped, but she couldn’t go home anymore. Despite this trauma, Rose has adjusted well to her new home.

But with so many basic needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t provide Rose with the education she deserves.

Without an education, Rose’s future looked bleak. Without basic literacy and numeracy, she would almost certainly have been doomed to a life of poverty.

But Rose is lucky - she has you in her life.

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

We’ll keep updating you about Rose 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 andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again, and very kind regards!

*Note that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Donations to this project will cover Rose’s school costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn
