Budget: € 110000
Looptijd: 2019-11-28 - 2020-11-28


6.4 magnitude earthquake hits Albania at 3:54 AM local time, centred 30 km (19 miles) west of Tirana, at a depth of 10 km (6 miles). It was followed by a second earthquake of 5.4 magnitude at 07:10 AM with the epicenter around Durres (34 km northwest of Tirana). At least 21 people have been killed and hundreds injured after a 6.4 magnitude earthquake hit the Tirana area of Albania in the early hours of 26 November. The quake is believed to be the biggest for decades – damage to buildings and infrastructure is severe. The Albanian Red Cross has deployed doctors, first aiders and 160 volunteers, who are working at hospitals and at a tent camp at a football stadium in Durres, providing medical care, first aid, psychosocial support, food, water, hot drinks, blankets and hygiene items.
