As COVID-19 continues its devastating spread across Italy, a heartbreaking reality is setting in. The human and economic impact of this pandemic is being felt across the country, and the needs are great – especially for the most vulnerable.
We are fighting hard against this pandemic, but we also need your help!
This is why the Embassy of Italy in Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Red Cross, has launched a fundraising campaign to support the Italian Red Cross’s COVID-19 preparedness and response activities.
The Italian Red Cross, together with the Italian Civil Protection Department, is at the forefront of the response in Italy. Its vital role includes activities such as ambulance services, the delivery of medical equipment and protective gear for health professionals, food and medicine supply, providing information on the emergency, and support to the Ministry of Health in getting health professionals on the ground.
Your donation will help the most vulnerable in Italy make it through these uncertain times.
We count on your support, if you would like to contribute please visit: www.redcross.ca/ItalyCovidAppeal/HelpItaly
Together, we will get through this!
