Today FCA Bank and its Leasys subsidiary--which offers an array of mobility services, ranging from car sharing to long-term subscription services—are providing the Italian Red Cross with 300 Fiat and Jeep vehicles and five biocontainment ambulances based on the Fiat Ducato.

As Francesco Rocca, President of the Italian Red Cross, put it, “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.

Which means “A Helping Italy.”
