So far rescue teams have saved 45 people, but thousands are left homeless. Numerous buildings have been shattered or seriously damaged, leaving entire families stranded, without food or shelter.43680348_1574887815910029_r.jpeg43680348_1574887835730141_r.jpeg43680348_1574887854418193_r.jpeg43680348_1574887867842766_r.jpeg43680348_1574887878549434_r.jpeg43680348_1574887892201739_r.jpeg43680348_1574887902801744_r.jpeg43680348_1574887929994376_r.jpeg43680348_1574887940763559_r.jpeg43680348_1574887950349095_r.jpeg43680348_1574887960481408_r.jpeg43680348_1574887973956325_r.jpeg43680348_1574887988124233_r.jpeg43680348_1574888001586607_r.jpeg43680348_1574888011649260_r.jpeg43680348_1574888022945827_r.jpeg43680348_1574888032393257_r.jpeg43680348_157488804650822_r.jpeg43680348_1574888072706260_r.jpeg43680348_1574888082982746_r.jpeg43680348_1574888175202579_r.jpeg43680348_1574888193955234_r.jpeg

The Albanian Red Cross (ARC) is one of the organizations engaging on the grounds, with volunteers actively helping to provide these families with basic clothing items, sanitary products, water, food packages, blankets and temporary sheltering.

This fundraiser aims to support such efforts, enabling ARC to purchase these much needed supplies and other emergency relief items to support the victims, until longer-term arrangements can be made. The campaign is coordinated directly with the ARC staff, who are leading operations on the ground.

Once the goal has been reached, or at the end of this week – whichever is sooner – the funds will be transferred via bank transfer to the Albanian Red Cross bank account at Raiffeisen Bank,  account number 8030000135,  IBAN AL69202110130000008030000136, SWIFT Code SGSBALTX. If easier, you can also use this information above to transfer funds to ARC directly.

As a long-time ARC volunteer, I have seen first-hand the impact of ARC volunteers and their work. The funds will go directly to the families who have been hurt by the earthquake and are in desperate need of help, food & shelter.  Also, Red Cross is committed to provide a report on how these funds will be utilized. If, like me, you’d like to make a contribution in support of their recovery efforts, consider donating through the link below. But if you cannot contribute at this time, please share this link further so we can reach even more people. The Albanian people need our support today. Anything helps.

Thank you, 

KKSH Volunteer Staff
