On behalf of Wilson, "Thank you!"

Thanks so much for helping to provide a safe home for Wilson.

Wilson was brought to the HTDC orphanage by his grandparents who used to care for him. This was a heartbreaking decision for them, but they couldn’t afford to feed him, or send him to school. 

Wilson’s grandparents hoped the orphanage could keep a roof over his head, but safe houses large enough for all the kids are very expensive in Port-au-Prince. The orphanage can’t afford to pay it’s own rent and, without your help, Wilson was in danger of becoming a homeless street-kid.

Yet now, because of you, Wilson will continue to have a safe home. Your donations will help pay the rent and provide caregivers, water and electricity for Wilson for a year*.

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

We’ll keep updating you about Wilson 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 Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you! 

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

*Please note, that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Your donations to this project will cover Wilson’s share of the costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.
