A devastating 6.2- magnitude earthquake struck central Italy in the early hours of Wednesday 24 August.

Hundreds of people have died. Families’ homes have been destroyed.

Italian Red Cross rescue teams are working day and night searching for survivors in the rubble.

Local Red Cross volunteers are helping families who are struggling to come to terms with the disaster. They are treating people who have been injured and providing food and support for the families who have lost their loved ones.

Donate today to support the work of the Italian Red Cross.

Please note

This appeal has been set up in support of the Italian Red Cross’ earthquake relief effort. In the unlikely event that we raise more money than can be reasonably and efficiently spent by the Italian Red Cross, any surplus funds will be used to help us prepare for and respond to other humanitarian disasters anywhere in the world.
