SUPPORTING Save the Children

12/14/2011
Helping families affected by the floods in Thailand return home
 
This festive season Intercruises has made a donation to the Save the Children Emergency Fund for victims of the floods in Thailand.

The donation was made in November, at which time 63 of Thailand’s 76 provinces had been affected by floods, impacting on more than 700,000 households and the lives of over 5 million people, including almost 2 million children.
 
A more recent situation report from Save the Children estimates that nearly 2 million households have been affected by the floods, which have also claimed almost 600 lives. 
Our colleagues and business partners are amongst those affected and the Intercruises donation to Save The Children will provide essential items for thousand of people as they start to rebuild their lives.
 
Save the Children
Save the Children is currently implementing a first phase response that focuses on Child Protection and the distribution of Food and Non-food Items (NFIs), to provide water, sanitation, hygiene, education, food and security to those affected by the floods.
 
Save the Children has reached 19,478 beneficiaries and trained 103 volunteers on child protection. At time of writing, 476 children have gone through Save the Children CFS services, with various activities including psychosocial support, setting up child safeguarding and referral system.
