Responding to the Albania Earthquake

Field Report by Dina Sleiman

ALBANIA – Recently a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck the northwest region of Albania, killing at least 51 people and leaving hundreds of others injured.

People are sleeping outside, as even those with homes are afraid to go indoors due to aftershocks. In addition, the hundreds of aftershocks have complicated the rescue efforts. People in the area are in dire need of help.

Churches have moved into the area with food, blankets, and other supplies. One pastor said, “Everybody here has suffered some measure of material damage.”

And thanks to your support, Operation Blessing is responding with disaster relief to the Albania earthquake. We are currently planning and preparing our response to this devastating crisis. Check back for more details as they become available.
