How To Help Italy



If you’re in Italy… 

Forexinfo suggested you go to San Camillo de Lellis General Hospital in Rieti and give blood. You need to have an identification card, and you should avoid eating dairy products or drinking alcohol beforehand if you plan to donate plasma.



You can drop off nonperishable foods, water, clothing, medicine, batteries or bedding at the schools and stores in Rieti listed here by Il Messaggero.

You can deactivate your wireless password so people can freely use your internet to communicate, La Stampa reported.

Support a business that’s donating its profits to emergency relief. Deliveroo Italia, for example, is sending all delivery costs to the local Red Cross.

If you’re somewhere else…

You can donate money to La Stampa’s emergency fund. Go to and specify that you want your gift to go to “Fund 597 Earthquake in Central Italy,” or “Fondo 597 Terremoto Centro Italia.”

Donate to the Italian Red Cross, which has deployed rescue dogs and ambulances to affected areas,here.

Direct your business to companies helping charities responding to the earthquake. The Rome Red Cross tweeted that McDonalds and KFC had both donated food supplies to the relief effort Wednesday.
