Thanks for feeding Susan during floods

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

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

Susan is forty-eight years old. She lives with her two daughters, son-in-law and grandson in a poorly constructed house dangerously close to a river, in Banaba, just outside Manila, in the Philippines.

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

During floods Susan 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 Susan and her family often have to go hungry.

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

Hot meals will be available when the next flood forces Susan and her family to leave their home. Evacuation will never be easy for Susan, 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 Susan, 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 Susan and her family can enjoy hot meals during floods.

Thanks for keeping a roof over Kenson's head

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

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

Kenson's mum is alive but she's homeless and couldn't afford to feed him or keep him safe. So, she was forced to abandon Kenson at the HTDC orphanage.

Kenson’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 its own rent and, without your help, Kenson was in danger of becoming a homeless street-kid.

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

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!

*Please note, that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Your donations to this project will cover Kenson’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 Novelie in school

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

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

Novelie is six and 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 was heartbroken to give her up, but she was almost a child herself.

Novelie’s aunt hoped the orphanage could care for her. But with so many basic needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t afford to send Novelie to school.

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

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

Your fantastic generosity means that we’ll be able to keep Novelie in school and learning the skills she needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Novelie’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 Novelie because you chose to give. 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 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 Novelie’s school costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.
