ZAGREB, July 20 (Hina) – The Croatian Red Cross will donate HRK 2 million to residents whose homes were severely damaged in the 22 March earthquake that hit Zagreb and northwestern Croatia.

Applications for financial aid can be submitted from 21 July to 17 August.

Aid can be sought by owners of properties declared unfit for use provided that such applicants also meet some other social criteria that make them eligible. For instance, single parents with a minimum gross monthly wage of HRK 4,062 or pensioners with a pension allowance of less than 2,000 per member of their household are eligible for aid.

The two million kuna for this purpose was raised through donations from private individuals, companies and international organisations.
