NCLH Raises $2.5M For Hurricane Relief
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., the company behind the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, has announced it has met its goal of raising $2.5 million for the Hope Starts Here hurricane relief program.
In less than four months, the program has received more than $1.25 million in donations, which the company has matched in order to assist All Hands and Hearts – Smart Response, a non-profit organization focused on natural disaster relief, in rebuilding safe, resilient schools on affected Caribbean islands Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Tortola.
“We are extremely grateful to have met our goal of raising $2.5 million to help fund the Hope Starts Here hurricane relief program which we began after witnessing the devastation that Hurricane Irma and Maria inflicted on the Florida Keys and the Caribbean,” said Frank Del Rio, NCLH president and CEO.
“We want to wholeheartedly thank everyone who contributed to our efforts to deliver early relief response and rebuild safe, resilient schools in these impacted communities. We could not have met this goal without your generosity.”
