Drinking water is scarce, or completely lacking in some flooded areas of the Marche. Criticalities in this sense are recorded not only in homes but also in hospitals and there are also small and medium-sized centers still isolated due to the unauthorized traffic. The director of the Italian Caritas, Don Marco Pagniello, returning from an inspection in the areas most affected by the violent flood and, at Adnkronos, took stock of the critical issues and the situation he saw with his own eyes. “The situation of the displaced is constantly changing – observes the director of Caritas -. There are small and medium-sized centers that cannot be reached due to impaired traffic. Drinking water is scarce or completely lacking in some areas, in the caae and even in hospitals ». Caritas in Senigallia continues to welcome the displaced, a task force of Fire Brigade will also arrive shortly to bring help.
«We are still in full emergency and the alert continues to be there even if now fortunately a bit of sun has come out. The Marche people are a cohesive community and immediately armed themselves with shovels and boots to shovel mud and to throw away what was destroyed in the flood “, says the director of Caritas who returns from the places scourged by the flood having in his eyes” the pain and fatigue of so many people but also the desire to react ». Now Caritas will map needs “especially for the most isolated countries. It is a question of accompanying families and making sure that no one is excluded from aid “, even overcoming the bureaucracy that would add insult to injury.
«Even the CEI now in all probability – anticipates Don Pagniello – will allocate funds to help. The 5 million euros promised yesterday by Draghi are a first great response ». Caritas is also active in serving meals to people who did not want to leave home “but who – as the director of Caritas explains – have no electricity or gas. Then there are many elderly people literally torn from their unusable homes who hope to be able to return as soon as possible »..
