From the Facebook page Amatrice 2.00 - the sun after the storm - updates keep arriving on the progress of aid.
A farmer with cattle has been helped by our volunteers and now has a new barn and soon will also have stalls for the animals, we have delivered the straw, which was not easy and we also spoke to the son who will help us in the operation ‘SOS agricoltori di Amatrice 2.0’.
to keep up to date
for information on possible contributions - also on helping actually on site - call or write to Roberto Salustri
Roberto Salustri, coordinator of the Amatrice 2.0 inizitive - the sun after the storm, has informed me that he is organizing a group of volunteers for a shift in Amatrice and surroundings the 3 and 4 December.
Anyone wishing more information may contact him directly https://amatriceduepuntozero.wordpress.com/partecipare/
People who are willing to help out will be educated and trained for their own and others' safety.
Other friends and associates are mobilizing to deliver hay in the area or to help members and non-members to recall the practicability of their homes. It would be useful to find hay (and straw) in areas as close as possible to the affected areas to avoid wasting resources in long-haul transport.
There has been useful information on caravans or campers that can be made available for those who cannot sleep in a house whilst waiting to provide accommodation in housing units.
