Collette Makes Donations for Nepal Disaster Aid

Collette is making a series of donations up to $50,000 to help with rehabilitation of Nepal after its recent earthquake.

The tour operator donated $25,000 to Plan International, designated for Nepal. In addition Collette donated $5,000 to the Tourism Cares fund for Nepal.

And the company also offered to match up to $10,000 in donations from employees, travel agents or partners, for a total of $20,000 in addition to Collette’s direct donations to Plan International and Tourism Cares.

Depending on the amount of donations matched, the amount could reach $50,000.

“We are proud to support this fantastic organization [Plan International],” said Nicole Diebold, Collette’s senior manager of corporate giving. “Our donation will go directly to their efforts in Nepal, creating an impact where it is most needed and most urgent.”

Plan International is focusing especially on the welfare of children.

“Children are particularly vulnerable in natural disasters,” said Mattias Bryneson, Plan International Nepal’s Country Director, "and making sure that their core needs — shelter, water, healthcare, and essential protection mechanisms — are met will be among our immediate priorities.

 “Children may be separated from their families, they may be injured themselves, their homes may be damaged or destroyed, and they may be deeply traumatized. As we get to work assessing the needs of communities and delivering relief, meeting these needs will be among our top priorities.”
