Albania Earthquake Relief
Aftershocks are still being felt across Durres, Albania and some of our staff, along with thousands of others have been made homeless by the disaster. Our staff are reporting people are panicking as tremors continue, with many afraid or unable to return home. While all of our sponsored families are accounted for there is a huge need for emergency supplies.
We are distributing the food, clothing and sanitation items. Also a truck of goods is being prepared at our warehouse in Romania with additional relief supplies.
Andrew NZ Director visited in 2016 and is shocked by the news, “I have personally seen the housing that many poor families live in. An earthquake of this magnitude hits very hard. Unlike New Zealand, they don’t have insurance for their homes or possessions, so many will have lost everything. Many families and elderly will be looking to us for whatever help we can offer them.”
