Following Monday’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake, which was followed by a series of powerful aftershocks, rescuers are engaged in a race against time to save people who are trapped beneath the rubble, and get shelter and support to those who have lost their homes or are afraid to return inside.
It is unthinkable that, in the space of just a few days, thousands of people have lost loved ones forever, not to mention their homes, amid a death toll that has surpassed 22,000.
Many people here in Belfast have been asking what they can do to help, which is why Cliftonville FC are only too humbled to join forces with NI Water and Foodstock, who will be receiving donations at the turnstiles ahead of the Reds’ match with Portadown on Tuesday.
