A year of food for Bodlina

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV) Vetted since 2009 Project of the Month Site Visit Verified

Summary

This project will provide a year of nutritious food for six year old Bodlina. Bodlina's father was killed in a motorcycle accident and her mother died of an illness. So, she was brought to the HTDC orphanage with her brother, Bodlison. Bodlina's a lovely, energetic girl who loves to play with the other kids at the orphanage. But without nutritious meals to keep her growing, Bodlina's future will be bleak.

Challenge

As an orphan, Bodlina 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, Bodlina may have to go without nutritious meals, leaving her more vulnerable to illness and less healthy.

Solution

By donating today, you'll help us provide the food Bodlina needs to stay healthy. Note that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Donations to this project will cover Bodlina's share of the food costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.

Long-Term Impact

A healthy, balanced diet prevents illness and promotes healthy growth. By providing the nutritious food Bodlina needs, you're preventing illness and helping her grow up strong!
