Albania, A Southeastern Europe’s Balkan Peninsula, is a small country with Adriatic and Ionian coastlines and an interior crossed by the Albanian Alps. The country has many castles and archaeological sites. Capital Tirana centers on sprawling Skanderbeg Square, site of the National History Museum, with exhibits spanning antiquity.

Northwestern Albania was struck by a 6.4-magnitude earthquake with an epicentre 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) west-southwest of Mamurras Town, at 03:54 CET (UTC+1) on 26 November 2019. ... A total of 51 people were killed in the earthquake, with about 3,000 injured.

The EU office in Albania estimated that some 1.9 million people out of a total population of 2.8 million have been affected by the earthquake. Of those, more than 3,000 people were injured, 14,000 became homeless and throughout Albania 14,000 buildings were damaged of which 2,500 are rendered uninhabited,
Total damage: : 14,000+ buildings damaged
  • 14,000+ buildings damaged/destroyed
  • €844 million in damages
  • €1.07 billion (estimated reconstruction cost)

Along with much of the rest of the world, Albania was forced this Spring to take unprecedented public health measures to slow down the spread of COVID-19. And this, we cannot forget, was soon after the destructive earthquake in November 2019. The freezing of large parts of the economy has plunged Albania into a severe recession. A range of factors make Albania especially vulnerable to this crisis.

World Bank predicted the Albanian economy would shrink by 5% during 2019 Earthquake, A 10% Decline followed in 2020 due to COVID-19  one of the sharpest declines and hardest hit Economy in the region.

crisis continue to mount in 2021 as 100s of thousands families are in misery condition without running water an electricity, kids still taking classes in communist era buildings that may collapse from moment to moment.

The Quake victims described their lives and was observed  as living hell, without heat during winters, running water, electricity, shelters, living of limited recourses and in thin low quality made tents, kids continuing, forced to take classes in communist era buildings without heat nor water or bathrooms due to the earthquake that took place and nocked down portions of school walls or destroyed them completely, teachers giving classes outdoor in good weather only and partially inside ready to collapse buildings.      

The scope of this fundraising is to be able and build back homes and schools for the people of Albania that where effected the most, today large numbers of them are without shelter, homes, running water, electricity, this will be a slow process and with the hope of god and your help we will make it, we will build back the peoples lives. #Donate for Albania #buildbackalbania
