The Association of Croatian American Professionals Foundation, together with Crodiaspora and the Canadian Croatian Chamber of Commerce, has launched a fundraising campaign to raise money to help those affected by Tuesday’s devastating earthquake in central Croatia.
“We are monitoring the situation in Croatia following the devastating earthquake that struck near the towns of Petrinja and Sisak, and caused major damage and loss of life. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who died and are injured, all those impacted, as well as with the first responders and volunteers who continue their search and rescue operations.
We know that the widespread damage to homes, hospitals, kindergartens, churches and other buildings has left many families without water, heat, electricity and shelter. Many of these same families, in the Banovina region, also suffered greatly during the Homeland War.
As global Croatian organizations, we stand united with our homeland. In the days to come, we will identify opportunities where our help will be most meaningful. As was the case with the relief efforts during the aftermath of the earthquake in Zagreb earlier this year, all funds raised will be used to help those most affected by the earthquake. In consultation with vetted organizations in Croatia, our representatives will determine how our help will be distributed.
We call on all of our members and friends to join us.
