Thanks for keeping Wilson in school

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

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

Fourteen year old Wilson 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 Wilson with an education.

Without an education, Wilson’s future looked bleak. Wilson is a very helpful child, who always wants to do his best. But without the ability to read or write he would be doomed to a life of poverty.

Yet Wilson is lucky, because he has you in his life.

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

We’ll keep updating you about Wilson 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 Wilson's school costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.

Thanks for supporting evacuees like EJ

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

EJ is nine years old. She lives with her parents, two brothers and sister in a poorly constructed house dangerously close to a river in the community of Banaba, just outside Manila, in the Philippines.

Every year there are floods, and EJ’s house is often inundated, including just a few months ago. Even when the water recedes a thick layer of disease carrying silt is left behind and takes days to clean.

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

Yet now, because of your generosity, we’ll be able to provide hot food for EJ and her family during evacuations.

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

We’ll send you updates about how your gift is changing the lives of EJ, her family and other 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 EJ and her family can enjoy hot meals during floods.

Thanks for stopping Kenson from going hungry

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

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

Kenson’s mum is alive but she's homeless and living on the streets, and can't afford to feed him. So, she left Kenson at the HTDC orphanage.

When Kenson’s mum left him at the orphanage she hoped he would have a better future there. But with so many hungry mouths to feed, the orphanage also struggled from day to day.

Without healthy food, Kenson was listless. He was often found crying or sleeping.

But now - thanks to you - the orphanage staff can barely keep up with him! They often hear his giggles and see his lovely smile.

Thanks to you - Kenson enjoys three nutritious meals every day - and we’ll be able to keep providing the food he needs to stay healthy and keep on growing.

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

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

*Donations to this project will cover Kenson’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.
