New-Zealand earthquake: the Accor Foundation mobilize to help


Christchurch emergency: alongside the New-Zealand Red-Cross, the Accor Foundation is mobilizing to help the population of Christchurch after the devastating earthquake on 22 February.


An emergency fund of 20,000 Euros has been earmarked by the Accor Foundation to finance supply drinking in Christchurch. It will help the New-Zealand Red-Cross to purchasse 2,000 water containers (a total of 60,000 litres).


The Foundation will review in a month time the situation, according to the local staff, and look to fund a longer lasting project around shelter.


The Accor Foundation invites employees wishing to help to make a direct donation on the New-Zealand Red-Cross.


This donation is coming on the top of local fundraising initiatives: the 29 hotels of Oceania will donate NZ$2 (1 Euro) for every room sold during a month in order to raise urgent funds in aid of the Christchurch earthquake relief effort.
