Earthquake: Croatia Stands With Turkey, Says Consul General

Croatia stands in solidarity with Turkey following the earthquakes that hit the country, Croatia’s Consul General Ivana Zerec said on Friday.

Zerec said; “The very first day the Croatian government sent the National Rescue Team of 40 experts experienced in urban search and rescue operations together with 10 trained search dogs.

“Our government also contributed financially, by sending 800,000 euros ($850,940) to the affected region."

She added; "Donations of 170,000 euros were sent via Croatian Caritas and the Croatian National Football Federation made a donation of 20,000 euros.

“It shows that all of Croatia stands in solidarity with Türkiye. Our people remember well the help Türkiye sent us two years ago when Croatia was hit by the earthquake in the Petrinja region."

Turkey's disaster agency said Friday that at least 38,044 people have been killed in the earthquake that shook the country on February 6.
