A Year of Meals for Paolo

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)


This project will provide a year of nutritious food for Paolo. Paolo is 13 years old and used to live with his dad but their house was destroyed in the earthquake. His dad received a tent but the camp was not safe for Paolo and so his dad brought him to the HTDC orphanage and hasn't returned since. Paolo wants to become a doctor, or a hip-hop star!. But without nutritious meals to keep him growing, Paolo's future will be bleak.

As an orphan, Paolo is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There isn't an effective nationwide child protection service operating in Haiti to provide for his basic needs. This means that, without your help, Paolo may have to go without nutritious meals, leaving him more vulnerable to illness and less healthy.


By donating today, you'll help us provide the food Paolo needs to stay healthy.

Long-Term Impact

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