Give Nolson a year of food
On behalf of Nolson, "Thank You!" so much.
On behalf of Nolson, "Thank You!" so much.

Thanks so much for helping to provide a year* of nutritious food for Nolson.

Nolson's dad died in the 2010 earthquake, leaving his mom to look after ten children. She couldn't provide for them, so she abandoned Nolson and two of his brothers at the HTDC orphanage.

When Nolson’s mum left them at the orphanage she hoped they would have a better future there. But with so many hungry mouths to feed, the orphanage also struggled from day to day.

Without healthy food, Nolson was listless. He didn’t play or run around.

But now - thanks to you - the orphanage staff can barely keep up with him! He loves to sing and dance and play football.

Thanks to you - Nolson enjoys three nutritious meals every day - and we’ll be able to keep providing the food he needs to stay healthy and keep on growing.

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

We’ll keep updating you about Nolson 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 We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again for making Nolson’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

*Donations to this project will cover Nolson’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.
