The IDV Trustees regret to announce their decision to close down the charity in early 2023.

Between 2008 and 2023 our incredible supporters helped us to raise over £1 million to support over 23,000 people in five countries.

However, in 2017 we transitioned back to being entirely by volunteers and this led to a steady decline in our income and subsequent ability to support our remaining overseas projects and partners.

Anticipating this situation would only continue we decided to act to close down IDV responsibly rather than simply run out of funds.

As part of this we worked with our remaining partners provide them with around 12 months of ongoing funding before closing down our fundraising platforms.

We transferred this funding as a lump sum to each partner at the end of February 2023. IDV has now become dormant before its full closure later in 2023.
