Albania Earthquake Relief
The 6.4 eathquake that hit Durres, Albania on 26 November has been devestating for the country. We are working alongside many families, helping them in their grief, supporting them through the aftermath and ensuring people are safe. Some of our staff, along with thousands of others have been made homeless by the disaster. We are helping the local church offer shelter and food to thsoe who need it.
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.”
