A home for Matialdo

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
A home for Matialdo


This project will provide safe housing for four year old Matialdo. Matialdo's mum is still alive but she left Matialdo at the orphanage after his dad was killed in a hurricane. The orphanage hopes to reunite the family in future, but for now they're looking after him. Matialdo's a quiet boy, but he loves his food and playing with other children his age. Yet, without the orphanage to keep him safe, Matialdo would be forced to fend for himself as a street-kid.

The HTDC Orphanage does its very best for the children in its care, but the situation in Haiti is even tougher right now than usual. Years of political unrest and the assassination of the President have created chaos and rising prices, and the impacts of Covid-19 on the global economy mean that donations are drying up. This means that we urgently need your support to keep providing a safe home for Matialdo.


By donating today, you'll help us pay the rent at HTDC Orphanage to provide the home Matialdo needs to stay safe and to grow up with a fighting chance. You'll also help us provide caregivers to look after Matialdo and ensure he has access to water and electricity. Donations to this project will cover Matialdo's share of the costs, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.

Long-Term Impact

A safe home and care are essential for every child. By providing these for Matialdo, you're giving him the foundations he needs to build a bright future.
