In April 2009, the worst earthquake Italy has seen in three decades struck the historic central Italian city of L’Aquila. The disaster killed hundreds, left tens of thousands homeless and injured more than 1,500 people. LifeWave responded by donating patches to help emergency response workers, volunteers and victims cope with the aftermath of this catastrophe.

In recognition of LifeWave’s efforts, an emissary from the office of the Mayor of Rome presented David Schmidt with this gold coin in front of a crowd of more than 800 who were gathered for LifeWave’s open meeting at the Ergife Palace Hotel in Rome on October 25, 2009.
