This project will provide a year of nutritious food for Wisly. Wisly is 14 years old and his dad died in the 2010 earthquake, leaving his mom to look after ten children. She couldn't provide for them all, so she abandoned Wisly and two of his brothers at the HTDC orphanage. Despite this, Wisly is one of the orphanage's most out-going kids - he loves posing for photos. But without nutritious meals to keep him growing, Wisly's future will be bleak.
As an orphan, Wisly 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, Wisly 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 Wisly needs to stay healthy. Note that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Donations to this project will cover Wisly'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.
A healthy, balanced diet prevents illness and promotes healthy growth. By providing the nutritious food Wisly needs, you're preventing illness and helping him grow up strong!
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Provide a safe home for Haitian Orphans. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
