A safe home for Christelle

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Vetted

Summary

This project will provide a year of safe housing for Christelle. Christelle isn't sure how old she is - we think she's around 10. Christelle's dad was forced to abandon her after her mom left and he couldn't afford to care for her anymore. Christelle was sick and malnourished when she arrived at the orphanage, but she's started looking forward to tomorrow. But without the orphanage to keep her safe, Christelle would be forced to fend for herself as a street-kid.

Challenge

As an orphan, Christelle is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There isn't an effective nationwide child protection service operating in Haiti to provide for her basic needs. This means that, without your help, Christelle would be a homeless street-kid, leaving her vulnerable to exploitation and destined to a life of suffering and poverty.

Solution

By donating today, you'll help us provide the home Christelle needs to stay safe and to grow up with a fighting chance. You'll also help us provide caregivers to look after Christelle and also ensure that she has access to water and electricity.

Long-Term Impact

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