HELP MY FAMILY FROM THE ALBANIAN EARTHQUAKE

A 6.4 MAG Earthquake hit our hometown of Durrës, Albania where my cousins, aunts, uncles and grandma live. Everything in our homes have been destroyed. My aunt was trapped in her home and was later able to be rescued. Food is scares and there is no resources. The ground has cracks that go 20 miles deep. No one can come in or leave the cities unless it’s medical personnel or search and rescue. My family was able to bring the mattresses out and have been outside for 25 hours. It has rained and they are drenched with no extra clothing. The children, all below the ages of 14 are cold, traumatized and hungry. Two family friends in our neighborhood have passed away during the tragedy just a few houses down from ours. We only have limited amount of wood left which will not last the entire week. Aftershocks are expected to hit very hard throughout the week. My grandmother has heart problems and isn’t able to get the medical attention needed. She is very fragile and is relying on her heart medication. Please find it in your heart to help as little or as much as you can. I never expected such a catastrophe to hit my family.
