Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings marks A$250,000 for Australia bushfires relief

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings committed A$250,000 to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund to help communities impacted by the bushfires.

Saddened by the devastation

‘We are saddened by the devastation caused by the ongoing bushfires in Australia,’ said Frank Del Rio, president and CEO, NCLH, the parent of Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Since July, Australian Red Cross teams have responded to 30 bushfire-related emergencies and supported over 18,600 people, through the efforts of more than 1,590 volunteers and staff. The organization has provided support to displaced people in more than 69 evacuation and recovery centers and is also providing emergency grants to help people who have lost homes in the fires cover immediate needs.

Support is 'truly heartening'

‘While these bushfires are devastating and unprecedented, the support from people and organizations around the world to help Australia is truly heartening,’ said Felicity Calvert, head of partnerships at the Australian Red Cross.
