Thanks for giving Evelyn shelter from the storm

On behalf of Evelyn, "Salamat Po" ("Thank You")

Thanks so much for supporting evacuees like Evelyn.

Forty year old Evelyn lives with her two daughters in Banaba, just outside Manila. Evelyn’s house is poorly constructed and is dangerously close to a river. Every year there are typhoons and floods, and Evelyn’s house is often overwhelmed by the water, including just a few months ago.

Evelyn needs her nearest evacuation center to be properly equipped so that her family has somewhere safe to shelter when disaster strikes.

And now, because of your generosity, we’ll be able to install seven private family cubicles in Evelyn’s evacuation center. The building will eventually house over 40 families during storms, and providing cubicles for everyone will take time, but your generosity gives us the means to make progress one cubicle and family at a time. Thank you so much.

We’ll send you updates about how your gift is changing the lives of Evelyn, her family, 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 will have shelter from the storm.

Thanks for keeping Wilkenson in school

On behalf of Wilkenson, "Thank You!" so much.
On behalf of Wilkenson, "Thank You!" so much.

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

Fourteen year old Wilkenson lost his parents in 2009. After his parents died his grandmother tried to care for him and his brothers, but she couldn't afford to feed them. So she was forced to abandon them at the HTDC orphanage.

But with so many other needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t provide Wilkenson with an education.

Without an education, Wilkenson’s future looked bleak. Wilkenson's an intelligent child, and speaks great English. But without basic literacy and numeracy, he would almost certainly have been doomed to a life of poverty.

But Wilkenson is lucky - he has you in his life.

Your fantastic generosity means that we’ll be able to keep Wilkenson in school and learning the skills he needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Wilkenson’s been doing really well in school, but if he needs extra help we’ll be there to get him the tutoring he needs.

We’ll be able to support Wilkenson because you chose to give. 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 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!

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