With the permission of the Iranian government, a team from Caritas Italiana—the relief and development agency of the Church in Italy—has visited the site of the deadliest earthquake of the year.
The November 12 earthquake killed 579 and injured nearly 8,000. Some 15,000 homes were severely damaged or destroyed.
Caritas Italiana, working with Caritas Iran, plans to contribute toward the reconstruction of schools and bathroom facilities.
