AID TO THE POPULATION OF CENTRAL ITALY HIT BY THE EARTHQUAKE ON AUGUST 24TH 2016

Seven years after the earthquake that hit L’Aquila on April 6 th 2009, Italy cries again. This time for the victims caused by the tremor occurred on August 24 th 2016, which stroke the Centre of the country. 283 people lost their lives and 2500 lost their home, with towns like Amatrice partially destroyed and Accumoli and Arquata del Tronto completely razed to the ground. Castelluccio, Norcia, Montereale, Pescara del Tronto and Rieti are only ones among the many that were seriously damaged.

The Grand Priory of Italy, as it had already done in similar circumstances in the past, activated itself in order to gather funds and humanitarian aid. To the call, with great solidarity, answered: the Municipal Administration and the Citizens of Cis (a town in Trentino), the Parish and Pastoral Committee of Cis, the Fire Departments of Cis and Coredo, the Alpinos Group of Cis, the Voluntary Bodies of the Non Valley, the 118 Voluntary Body of Cles, the Citizens of Pergine, Trento, Non Valley, Sole Valley, Vicolo Vattaro, Stringo and Scurelle.

We managed to gather any kind of aid, together with an initial sum of about 18,000.00 Euros.

On January 27 th , a first shipping, coordinated by our Hospitaller Dr. Massimiliano Ungaro and by the Fire Department of Cis Commander Oscar Betta, was delivered to some of Amatrice’s and Campotosto’s inhabitants. A second shipping was accomplished on February 5 th.

During the celebrations for Saint George, the saint patron of Cis, on April 23 rd , His Excellence Giovanni Ferrara, Grand Prior of Italy, publicly thanked the Municipal Administration of the town, as well as all the Voluntary Bodies and the Associations that made this remarkable act of solidarity possible, delivering them a certificate of merit and Grand Priory of Italy Medals of the Saint Lazarus Order.

BURNS NIGHT SUPPER

A highly succesful belated Burns Night Supper was held by the Grand Priory of Great Britain on Friday night.
The venue was the conventual church of the Grand Priory, St.Catherine Labouré in Farrington in Lancashire.
The event was held to raise emergency funds for our International Charity SUROL, who care for leprosy sufferers and their families in Sri Lanka,after more, hitherto unknown leprous patients, were discovered in the north of Sri Lanka.
We raised over £1000 to help them.
We continue to help those most in need.
