The Italian Jewellery house Bvlgari donated 500’000 Euros to Save the Children organization for immediate financial support after the devastating earthquarke in Nepal.
Right after the tragic events that struck in Nepal on April 28th leaving over 320’000 children homeless, rescue teams from Save the Children were able to be deployed, providing first aid and baby kits, soap and blankets to protect from the cold and ensure some hygiene, as well as necessary psychological support.
Delailah Borja, Save the Children’s Country Director in Nepal said: “The risk of disease outbreaks and exposure are very real, especially for young children. That is why we are moving fast to get hygiene kits, tarpaulins, and warm children’s sleeping bags out to everyone who needs them.” Supporting Save the Children’s humanitarian response, Bvlgari has donated €500,000.
Save the Children has been an active organization in Nepal since 1976 and developed a strength in managing crisis after critical events such as earthquakes. Bvlgari has been involved with Save the Children since 2009 with a campaign of unprecedented ambition and scope, in which part of the proceeds from the sale of Save the Children jewellery – custom designed by Bvlgari – are donated to the charity. Inspired by the iconic B.zero1 jewellery line, the special collection comprises a ring, launched in October 2010, and the new pendant, launched in April 2014. The collection’s two pieces are available in Bvlgari stores worldwide and has already enabled to donate over $ 35 million to the organization and provide assistance to more than 700’000 children within 25 countries worldwide with a specific focus on education and extreme emergency.
