Donate to the Italy Covid-19 Response Appeal


As COVID-19 continues its devastating spread across Italy a heartbreaking reality is setting in. The human and economic impacts of this pandemic are being felt across the country and the needs are vast – especially for the most vulnerable.

The Italian Red Cross, in the framework of the Italian Civil Protection Department, is at the forefront of the response in Italy. Ongoing Italian Red Cross interventions include activities such as ambulance services, delivery of medical equipment and protective gear for health professionals, food and medicines, provision of information about the emergency, and support to the Ministry of Health to get health professionals (doctors, nurses and also volunteers) to the ground. Money raised will enable the Italian Red Cross COVID-19 preparedness, response and recovery activities.

Your donation will help the most vulnerable in Italy make it through these uncertain times.

On behalf of the Embassy of Italy in Canada, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude for your donation during these trying moments.

"When man finally learns to control the elements... When the winds will be quiet and the earth cannot be torn apart...When there will be no loneliness... no destitution... no war... When the last hungry man, woman or child is fed... Only then will there be no need for the Red Cross."

– Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize winner
