Help Albanian Earthquake Relief Efforts

As reported in the news, on Tuesday, November 26th, Albania was hit by a 6.4-magnitude earthquake.  It was the strongest earthquake to hit Albania in more than 40 years. So far, according to official information, at least 50 have been killed, and over 900 people left injured and/or homeless. There was also some damage to the chapel of the Resurrection of Christ Orthodox seminary.
 
The Orthodox Church of Albania is offering its resources to all those now in need, opening their church properties for victims to take refuge in, and help prepare and hand out food to as many people as possible.
 
The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) has decided to set aside monies it was been raising for a future mission team in Albania to the Albanian Church’s disaster relief work for this emergency.
 
St. George will be donating its’ Charity Tray for December to the OCMC for these Albanian Earthquake relief efforts.
