ZAGREB, Dec 31, 2020 – The Islamic Community of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Serb Orthodox Church on Wednesday announced they would help those affected by a 6.2 earthquake in Croatia, calling on their members to sympathise with their neighbours in Croatia.

The leader of the Islamic Community, Husein Kavazovic, recalled how much Croatia helped BiH during the 1990s war.

“We can’t help but remember the generosity of our Croatian neighbours who, during the aggression on BiH, welcomed and supported us and showed understanding for what we were going through,” he said in a letter to Croatian Ambassador to BiH Ivan Sabolic.

“Now that Croatian citizens have been put to a difficult test, we feel the need to offer words of support and consolation for those who have lost their dearest ones or been injured,” Kavazovic said.

He added that the Islamic Community had contacted itsMeshihat in Zagreb and announced that it would organise a collection of funds for those in Croatia affected by the tremor.

The Metropolitanate of Zagreb and Ljubljana has invited all people of good will to join in the humanitarian campaign, the Serb Orthodox Church said, adding that Metropolitan Porfirije wished for solidarity as well as “kindness and love to reach everyone who needs assistance in this difficult moment.”
