Italy desperately needs our help and support after the damage and devastation caused by the 6.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Central Italy during the early morning of Wednesday, August 24, 2016. It killed at least 268 people, injured hundreds, and severely damaged the homes of 2,500 people.
Over 500 smaller quakes—a so-called earthquake swarm—have followed the main tremor, and are continuing to shake the area, adding further damage to the already tragic situation. The latest powerful aftershock hit the area shortly after dawn on Friday, sending up plumes of thick grey dust, shaking buildings that were still standing and fuelling fears of fresh collapses which could hamper the rescue operation.
ICNA Relief Canada is working closely with international partners to provide humanitarian aid to the victims of the Italy earthquake.
