Northern Italy has been hit with 2 large earthquakes over the past couple of weeks. 14,000 people are displaced and cannot return to their homes, over 350 people have been injured and at least 23 people have lost their lives. WCN has a standard protocol that we go through to determine what our response to a disaster should be. One of the elements is the availability of local partners in the disaster area. We always want the people that we serve in the aftermath of a disaster to be able to form long term relationships with other Christ followers. Secondly, we evaluate the logistics of getting relief and personnel on site. WCN is monitoring the situation and are continuing to pray for all affected.
