Boat building is flying!
First and foremost – thanks so much to everyone who gave on GlobalGiving’s most recent matching day! Your gifts on February 12th went 30% further than usual to ensure that hundreds of vulnerable families will weather floods unharmed.
Buklod Tao’s boat builders are currently working on a large rescue boat funded by the Vodafone foundation. Once that boat is finished, they’ll begin work on the GlobalGiving boat.
Funders of our boats get the opportunity to decide the boat’s paint job, so if you’d like to see something special on the boat you funded please email Emma@IDVolunteers.org and let me know.
We’re also looking forward to a swift water rescue training which is planned for April. The training will help newer rescue team members learn the skills they need to keep their communities safe during floods.
Boat building and rescue team training would be impossible without your extraordinary generosity – thanks so much!
If you ever have any questions about how we’re using your donation, please don’t hesitate to email me directly at Emma@IDVolunteers.org. I would be delighted to answer any questions you might have.
Thanks again, and we wish you all the best!
