Niarchos Foundation Offers 500K Emergency Relief to Nepal

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation has announced a total grant of $500,000 to Oxfam GB, and the International Federation of Red Cross, to assist international relief efforts aiming to provide critical support to the people of Nepal, who are suffering from the recent massive earthquake.

The grant will provide support to the efforts of: Oxfam GB, whose emergency equipment focuses on providing hundreds of thousands of people with safe drinking water and food, and International Federation of Red Cross, whose services not only include food, shelter, water and sanitation assistance, but rehabilitation of damaged local health facilities and the prevention of epidemics.

“Through these emergency relief grants directed to long-term partners of the Foundation, with vast experience in providing crucial relief support for the victims of natural disasters, we try to contribute towards an immediate and hopefully impactful response to the catastrophic earthquake,” said Andreas Dracopoulos, co-President of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
