Macedonian Govt pledges €100k, Skopje €50k to Croatian quake victims


The Council of the City of Skopje approved aid of 3 million denars (50,000 EUR) to the cities of Petrinja and Zagreb in Croatia, after the disastrous earthquake that hit the region yesterday. At least seven people, including one little girl, were killed in the earthquake, and hundreds are left homeless.

Skopje owes a lot to international solidarity after the devastating 1963 earthquake and the city issues symbolic assistance in similar tragedies. The Macedonian Government also approved 100,000 EUR in aid.
