Provide Florentina a year of food

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Provide Florentina a year of food

Summary

This project will provide a year of nutritious food for Florentina. Florentina is eleven. She was brought to the HTDC orphanage by her 16 year old aunt after her parents abandoned her. She's one of the most exuberant, out-going kids at the orphanage. She loves school - especially when her class sings! But without nutritious meals to keep her growing, Florentina's future will be bleak.

Challenge

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

Solution

By donating today, you'll help us provide the food Florentina needs to stay healthy. Note that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Donations to this project will cover Florentina'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.

Long-Term Impact

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