Cape Verde - Emergency aid following the Pico do Fogo eruption

Sant’Egidio and the Cape Verdean community of Rome have recently sent emergency aid to the population of the Ilha de Fogo island of the Cape Verde archipelago. 
For several weeks now the island has been devastated by the violent eruption of the Pico do Fogo, a volcano that is displaying an extremely destructive level of activity. Two locations on the island have been completely evacuated and many thousand inhabitants have lost all they owned. To assist them, several containers filled with children clothes and blankets, as well as other immediate necessities have been shipped from Italy.
