This Thanksgiving Nolson is thankful for you!

Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving!
Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving!

Nolson has nine brothers and sisters. After his dad died, his mom couldn’t afford to care for them all, so she brought him to the HTDC orphanage with two of his older brothers – Wisly and Nicholson.

Splitting up a family is a heart-wrenching experience, and it took Nolson and his brothers a while to settle in. But thanks to donors like you, we were able to give Nolson and his brothers a safe home, nutritious food, health care and fun activities like art classes,.

Today, Nolson is absolutely thriving. He loves school, and is always tagging along with his older brothers when they play football. Nolson has also become the orphanage’s neatest child and can often be found tidying up the toys and helping the staff clean.

As families across the US gather to give thanks, HTDC is also planning its own thanksgiving meal. The kids will share three turkeys with their friends in Port au Prince.

This year, we wanted to take a moment to let you know that Nolson – and 29 other children just like him – are thankful for you.

We wish you a very happy Thanksgiving from all of the kids in Haiti and our staff at IDV!
