Formula One has announced to donate one million euros to flood relief in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy.
Northern Italy received half its annual rainfall this month followed by a flood emergency in the region. At least 14 people died and thousands were left homeless.
The country is in dire need of donations from across the world. Meanwhile, Formula One, regarded as one of the elite sports, have announced to donate a hefty amount to flood relief.
Formula One said in a statement the money would be donated to the region's Agency for Territorial Safety and Civil Protection.
Stefano Domenicali, the Formula One chief executive who was born and grew up in Imola, said local communities faced a terrible situation.
"We must do everything we can to support them at this difficult time and that is why we are donating to help support the relief efforts on the ground," he said.
"My thoughts, on behalf of the entire Formula One community, are with everyone affected and we want to thank the emergency services for their incredible work."
