The largest earthquake in Albania in decades hit around 4 am on Tuesday, November 26, 2019. At this writing, damages and loss of life are still being determined in the first light of day after the earthquake.
Our ministry center in Vlashaj is only 5 miles from the epicenter, and our staff and neighbors are shaken physically and emotionally. At least 5 families in Vlashaj have been left homeless, and Planters is looking into tangible ways to offer support to them and others in our community during this time. We have created a giving page with the goal of raising $10,000 in the next month to help in emergency aid and to help begin the reconstruction. Prayerfully consider joining us as we reach out to our neighbors!
