Thanks for keeping Nolson in school

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

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

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

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

Without an education, Nolson’s future looked bleak. He was heartbroken when his mom left him at the orphanage, but he’s started to smile again. Yet without basic literacy and numeracy, he would almost certainly be doomed to a life of poverty.

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

Your fantastic generosity means that we’ll be able to keep Nolson in school and learning the skills he needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Nolson’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 Nolson because you chose to give. 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 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 Nolson’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 keeping a roof over Christelle's head

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

Christelle's dad was forced to abandon her after her mom left and he couldn't afford to care for her anymore. In desperation he brought Christelle to the HTDC Orphanage.

Christelle’s dad hoped the orphanage could keep a roof over her 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, Christelle was in danger of becoming a homeless street-kid.

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

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

We’ll keep updating you about Christelle 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 Christelle’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 Christelle’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 feeding Jaspar during floods

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

Thanks so much for providing hot meals for Jaspar during floods.

Twelve year old Jaspar lives with his parents in the community of Banaba, just outside Manila. Jaspar’s house is poorly constructed, and dangerously close to a river.

Every year there are floods, and Jaspar’s house is often inundated. During floods Jaspar and his 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 Jaspar’s family often have to go hungry as well.

But now, because of your generosity, we’ll be able to provide hot food for Jaspar and his family during evacuations.

Hot meals will be available when the next flood comes and forces Jaspar and his family to leave their home. Evacuation will never be easy for Jaspar, but your generosity means that he and his family won’t go hungry.

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