Early in the morning of November 26, Albania was struck by a 6.4 magnitude earthquake. At least 15 have been killed with several hundred injured. The earthquake struck just outside of the capital city of Tirana.

All of the disciples in the Christian Church of Albania are accounted for and uninjured. After consulting with the church leadership in Albania, HOPE worldwide will be sending a small team to Albania with lifesaving water filters and blankets. Charles Ham, HOPE worldwide’s Global Disaster Advisor, will work with the church leadership to conduct an assessment of the situation.

Please pray for the people of Albania and the surrounding countries as many large aftershocks have happened since the initial earthquake.
