The deadliest earthquake in Italy in over 15 years left L’Aquila and the surrounding areas without water. Almost 500 aftershocks, some of which were strong enough to move furniture in Rome. At least 17,000 people are living in makeshift tent cities. About 28,000 people were left homeless. About 15,000 of those were moved to over 100 different hotels. Others either slept in their cars or in over 3,600 tents that were set up with about 40 kitchens. GlobalGiving is working with Slow Food Italy, which has a chapter in Abruzzo, and the US-based UNICO. Both organizations are in the process of assessing needs and providing basic supplies and necessities to the earthquake victims. You can support relief efforts in the Abruzzo region by bidding in this auction, or making a direct donation at www.globalgiving.org..
