Italian earthquake victims receive donation from Pope
Catholic World News - May 28, 2012
Pope Benedict XVI has made a contribution of €100,000 ($125,000) to support victims of a recent earthquake in Italy.
Cor Unum, the papal charity, announced that the Pope’s donation would be allocated among the dioceses of the region hit by the earthquake—Carpi, Mantua, Modena-Nonantola, and Ferrara-Comacchio—to support diocesan relief activities among the earthquake victims.
