9th July, 2009 – L’Aquila, Italy

By bkalsi | July 21, 2009

Betty Williams went to San Demetrio Camp which is near L’Aquila, Italy with George Clooney and Bill Murray to highlight the plight of the people dealing with life after the April 6, 2009 earthquake which left thousands homeless and killed nearly 300 people. They were invited to the region to open the Nobel for Peace Hall, and also to highlight how the world had not forgotten their tragedy.


Away from the press, Betty met with the children and asked them what they needed. Their simple response was Books. With their schools destroyed, WCCCI would like to ask you, your friends, co-workers, neighbors, and family members to make a difference for these children and show them that the world does still care.
