Thanks for keeping a roof over Paolo's head

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

Thanks so much for helping us to provide a safe home for Paolo.

Fourteen year old Paolo used to live with his dad, but their house was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake. After the disaster Paolo’s dad received a tent but he was worried about Paolo’s safety in a chaotic displacement camp. So Paolo’s dad brought him to the HTDC orphanage and he simply hasn't returned since.

Paolo’s dad obviously 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 it’s own rent and, without your help, Paolo was in danger of becoming a homeless street-kid.

But now, because of you, Paolo has a safe home for at least the next year. Your donations will also provide caregivers to meet Paolo’s needs and ensure that he has access to water and electricity.

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

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