Addressing the ceremony of the handover of the donation, Serb Orthodox Metropolitan of Zagreb and Ljubljana Porfirije said in Petrinja that the Serb Orthodox Church (SPC) would continue to tirelessly help the local community.

He recalled that after providing humanitarian relief to quake victims, it would also be necessary to help them reconstruct their homes.

The dignitary who visited Petrinja, Glina and their environs said that the 29 December devastating quake “wreaked Biblical havoc” and expressed condolences to the families of the seven people who lost their lives in the disaster. 

The Banija Is Our House humanitarian initiative, which has raised over HRK 500,000 and €27,000 for earthquake victims, held its inaugural meeting in Petrinja on Friday, bringing together representatives of the Serbian Orthodox Church, the Serb National Council (SNV) and other Serb organisations in Croatia.

Aid for the victims is arriving also from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, the SNV said, adding that trucks with construction material and 72 container homes were being delivered in cooperation with the Red Cross and the relevant services.
