Help Our Beloved Italy in Earthquake-Ravaged Lazio Region
A series of earthquakes and aftershocks rocked the Italian region of Lazio last night, killing 73 people thus far, injuring hundreds, leaving thousands homeless, and costing the region into the hundreds of millions of in damaged and lost productivity.
One of the hardest hit areas was Amatrice, a town of approximately 2,000 people. The mayor looked out over the ruins and
stated, “The town isn’t here anymore.” One can only imagine the depth of anguish his words carried. The quake struck in the middle of the night and so many never had a chance in these mountain towns and villages.
As we have done many times before with your support, the Sons of Italy Foundation (SIF) has set up an Earthquake Relief Fund to help the region recover from this disaster. All donations to this fund are tax-deductible. The SIF will be working directly with the Embassy of Italy to direct funds to emergency relief, recovery and/or rebuilding as requested by the Italian Government.
Please help our brothers and sisters in Italy at this critical time. On behalf of those that need our help, we THANK YOU for your support!
