Thanks for feeding Evelyn

On behalf of Evelyn, "Salamat Po" ("Thank you")!
On behalf of Evelyn, "Salamat Po" ("Thank you")!

Thanks so much for providing hot meals for evacuees like Evelyn. 

Evelyn is 41 years old, and she lives with her two young children in the community of Banaba, just outside Manila, in the Philippines. 

Evelyn’s house is dangerously close to a river. Every year there are floods, and Evelyn’s house is often inundated completely. Even when the water recedes a thick layer of disease carrying silt is left behind and takes days to clean.

During floods Evelyn and her children have to spend days sleeping on the floor of an evacuation centre. This is a traumatic experience already, and it’s made worse as Evelyn and her children often have to go hungry as well.

But now, because of your generosity, we’ll be able to provide hot food for Evelyn and her children during evacuations. 

Hot meals will be available when the next flood comes and forces Evelyn and her children to leave their home. Evacuation will never be easy for Evelyn, but your generosity means that she and her children won’t go hungry.  Thanks so much!

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

One last time, thanks so much for ensuring that Evelyn and her children can enjoy hot meals during floods.

Thanks for stopping Novelie from going hungry

On behalf of Novelie, "Thank you!"
On behalf of Novelie, "Thank you!"

Thanks so much for helping to provide a year* of food for Novelie.

Novelie is six years old. After her mom died she was left in the care of a young aunt. Novelie's aunt couldn't afford to care for her and so she brought her to the HTDC orphanage. 

Novelie’s aunt left her at the orphanage as she hoped she would have a better future there, but with so many other hungry mouths to feed, the orphanage also struggled from day to day. 

Without healthy food, Novelie was listless. She didn’t smile or play much.

But now - thanks to you - the orphanage staff can barely keep up with her! Novelie smiles and giggles and shows a lot of spirit.

Because of you, Novelie 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.

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

We’ll keep updating you about Novelie and all her friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage right here on GlobalGiving. 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 Novelie’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

*Donations to this project will cover Novelie’s share of the food costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.

Thanks for keeping a roof over Wilkenson's head

On behalf of Wilkenson, "Thank you!"
On behalf of Wilkenson, "Thank you!"

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

Fifteen year old Wilkenson lost his parents in 2009. After his parents died Wilkenson lived with his grandmother, but she couldn't care for him or his brother. So, she was sadly forced to abandon them at the HTDC orphanage.

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

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

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

We’ll keep updating you about Wilkenson 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 Wilkenson’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

*Your donations to this project will cover Wilkenson’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.
