Project Report | Jan 12, 2023
A final thanks - closing down this project

By Andy Chaggar | IDV Chief Executive

Salamat Po! (Thank You!)
Salamat Po! (Thank You!)

Thank you so much for helping to build rescue boats in flood prone communities.

As we explained in a previous project report we’ve made the sad but necessary decision to close down our charity, International Disaster Volunteers (IDV) in early 2023.

As part of this process we’re planning to close down this project here on GlobalGiving by Sunday 15 January. This is the final project report we’ll be sending before we do.

This is a sad report to write as this project has been active for almost 10 years, but thanks to your amazing generosity we’ve been able to make an incredible impact working in partnership with an incredible local organisation called Buklod Tao.

Because of your amazing support we’ve been able to provide 12 completely new rescue boats and refurbish another 6 that were originally provided by other donors. Together, this fleet of boats protects almost 5,500 families during the Philippines annual typhoon season.

This is already a fantastic legacy and I’m delighted to say that since announcing our closure we’ve raised over $1,500 here on GlobalGiving to support Buklod’s Tao ongoing work after we close down. What’s more GlobalGiving has also awarded us an amazing $10,000 towards the same end.

It’s hard to state just how grateful we are for this support. While we’re obviously sad to be closing down IDV, we’re heartened that Buklod Tao’s amazing efforts will continue. Thank you so much for making this possible.

We also asked Buklod Tao’s President, Noli, if he had a message for you and here’s what he had to say:

“We here at Buklod Tao, Inc. wish to manifest our heartfelt "Salamat po"/Thank You to all our IDV friends and to GlobalGiving for the continuing support in the interest of community development initiatives in this part of the Philippines (island of Luzon, province of Rizal, town of San Mateo, village of Banaba).

Godspeed, IDV.

God's blessings to GlobalGiving.”

If you’d like to stay in touch with Buklod Tao after we close, and potentially even continue to support them, then please reach out to Noli using linobotak@gmail.com.

And if you would like to make one final donation via GlobalGiving, please do so now.

You can find out more about our plans to close down IDV on our website, and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email Andy@IDVolunteers.org. I’d be delighted to hear from you as always.
