Where to donate?

We’ll send the funds we collected right to the town of Amatrice and their website is

– and our daughter, Giulia Alagna, now working for European Broadcasting Union in Rome (and closely linked to journalists on the quake sites), offers this suggestion:

To donate directly to the affected town’s administrations:

ANPCI (Associazione Nazionale Piccoli Comuni Italiani – “National Association of Small Towns In Italy”)
(Iban: IT 95 G 02008 05154 000104428055)

Here is another organization – in the U.S. – working on earthquake assistance: http://www.italianamericanrelief.org

….and Padre Marco Federici, OFM, Franciscan who did so much for Abruzzo following their 2009 earthquake, suggests this source for donations, i.e. the diocese of the Rieti province (where Accumoli, Amatrice are located):

Caritas Diocesana di Rieti – Unicredit Banca di Roma – Agenzia: Rieti Battisti (00788)

IBAN IT 43 P 02008 14606 000005208129 Codice BIC Swift UNCRITM1788

Causale (i.e, destination of funds): Terremoto Amatrice – Accumoli

Agenzia Viaggi Stoppini in Assisi handles all technical support for my guided visits (bus transportation, organization of meals, etc)
