Let’s get moving by staying home: Fca Bank and Leasys together with the Italian Red Cross, mobility at the service of the country

FCA Bank and its Leasys subsidiary take action to support Italy following the outbreak of Covid-19, by making available to the Italian Red Cross a fleet of 300 Fiat and Jeep vehicles as well as 5 biocontainment ambulances Fiat Ducato-based to contribute to address the health emergency.





Thanks to the extensive presence of Leasys Mobility Stores in Italy, Red Cross volunteers deployed throughout the country, through 700 territorial committees, will be able to rely on sound support in their daily deliveries of basic necessities and medicines in Italian cities to people in need of assistance.

Since the start of the epidemic, the Italian Red Cross has in fact been engaged in many ways, providing relief and logistic, health, psychological support as well as the safe transport of people in need of hospitalization or home assistance. The Italian Red Cross decided to turn this emergency into a “time of kindness”, intensifying throughout the country all the services devoted to the most vulnerable members of society, such as home delivery of food, medicines and other basic necessities, as well as social transportation. Every day thousands of people call the Italian Red Cross at its toll-free number - 800 065510 - to ask for help.

“Thanks to the generous donation by FCA Bank and its Leasys subsidiary, we will be able to enhance our services and to be closer to the people that are in greater need of support at this time”, said Francesco Rocca, President of the Italian Red Cross. “The elderly, the immunocompromised and all those who cannot go out to shop need someone who can do it for them. That’s what the Red Cross volunteers are for. That’s why there is Un’Italia che Aiuta (A Helping Italy)”.

FCA Bank and Leasys are proud to contribute in a tangible manner to the initiatives of the Italian Red Cross and its volunteers and make themselves available to the community by trying to support those who need help, to face and overcome together this emergency as soon as possible” said Giacomo Carelli FCA Bank’s CEO and General Manager.
