Challenge

Following a 6.2 magnitude earthquake in August 2016, the towns of Amatrice, Accumoli and Arquata del Tronto village were among the worst hit by the quake which struck at 3.30am. Dozens of people were killed and many more are missing.

Solution

Twenty ambulances have also been sent to the area by the Red Cross while local volunteers are at the scene and providing psychological support for survivors. Mobile kitchens are also being set up in the area for people who have been forced to leave their homes. A 24-hour emergency control centre has been activated in Rome, while the Red Cross is also working from a mobile operations centre in the quake zone.

Long-Term Impact

The Italian Red Cross is also providing earthquake information and advice for people in the area as aftershocks continue to rock the region.
