Emergency Fund to buy care kits for children victims of epidemics
Cure Kids, a New Zealand NGO created in 1977, aims to remedy the lack of research on the childhood fatal diseases in New Zealand. Since 2003, AccorHotels New Zealand is partner of Cure Kids through the 26 hotels of the country implicated in the project. In 2006, AccorHotels NZ created Cure Kids Fiji to help, with the assistance of 4 hotels of the Group in Fiji, the local communities.
In April 2012, parts of the west of Fiji were flooded, leading to growing epidemics of leptospirosis, dengue and typhoid. To help many children suffering from these epidemics, Cure Kids Fiji set up an emergency program.
The Accor Foundation* supported this program, allocating emergency funds for the purchase of food supplements for 200 children for 3 months.
* In 2013, the Accor Foundation became Solidarity Accor.
Mobilization of Accor employees and Foundation in the Fiji Islands.
When the flooding occurred early in 2012 I organized fundraising to help families affected and then turned to Foundation Accor* to provide specific assistance for the children who faced ongoing severe and acute malnutrition.
