The Croatian Red Cross (HCK) reported on Saturday that in the last three days, more than 129 tons of food, 50,000 litres of water and 21,000 hot meals have been distributed in the earthquake-affected areas, and two new locations in Petrinja have been provided for accommodation.

They also distributed 172 heaters, 650 blankets, 39 generators and 700 packages of baby food and equipment.

HCK points out that they also provided psychosocial support for 1,600 people and organized 33 outdoor activities.

"Donations of humanitarian aid in larger quantities that require more complex logistics, and which are not clothing items, can be delivered to the Zagreb Fair, pavilion number 6," said HCK in a statement.

Until yesterday, a total of 36,392,944 Kuna in donations was paid, by both companies and individuals, for earthquake victims and funds are still being collected.

Here is the official Red Cross Link for those wishing to donate to the cause.

The donor phone - 060 90 11 – has so far received 69,169 calls, and collected a total of over 432,000 Kuna.
