New-Zealand earthquake: the Accor Foundation mobilizes 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 2011.

An emergency fund of €20,000 has been earmarked by the Accor Foundation to finance supply drinking in Christchurch. It will help the New-Zealand Red Cross to purchase 2,000 water containers (a total of 60,000 litres).
The Foundation will review in a month time the situation, according to the local employees, and look to fund a longer lasting project around shelter.

The Accor Foundation invites employees wishing to help to make a direct donation to the New-Zealand Red Cross:http://www.fundraiseonline.co.nz/accorchristchurchrelief

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