Petra Nemcova recently spoke about the Asian Tsunami on Boxing Day 2004 that took the lives of so many, including her fiancé, Simon Atlee, a British fashion photographer.
Dateline NBC spoke to the model about that event and also about the Happy Hearts Fund, which is the “non-profit dedicated to rebuilding safe-resilient schools in areas impacted by natural disasters” that Petra founded.
Last month @DatelineNBC joined @HappyHeartsFund and our founder @pnemcova at the opening ceremony of our school in Tabasco, Mexico to film our journey from the goal of rebuilding 1 school to having rebuilt over 100. Don’t miss the full story behind the founding of HHF and Petra’s experience in the 2004 Tsunami on Sunday, March 15th 9/8c for #Dateline’s Escape series.
A clip from that interview was shared on NBC’s Today Show.
We are so proud Petra has continued to share her journey, as we are certain she is an inspiration to so many, including us. Keep up the great work!
