On behalf of Florentina, "Thank You" so much!
Thanks so much for helping to provide a year* of school for Florentina.
Eleven year old Florentina was brought to the HTDC orphanage by her 16 year old aunt after her parents abandoned her. Florentina’s aunt was heartbroken to give her up, but she was barely an adult herself.
Florentina’s aunt hoped the orphanage could care for her. But with so many basic needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t afford to send Florentina to school.
Without an education, Florentina’s future looked bleak. Without basic literacy and numeracy, she would almost certainly have been doomed to a life of poverty.
But Florentina is lucky - she has you in her life.
Your fantastic generosity means that we’ll be able to keep Florentina in school and learning the skills she needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Florentina’s been doing really well in school, but if she needs extra help we’ll be there to get her the tutoring she needs.
We’ll be able to support Florentina because you chose to give. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Florentina. Thanks so much.
We’ll keep updating you about Florentina and all her classmates 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, and very kind regards!
*Donations to this project will cover Florentina’s school costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.
