The IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation has moved to help the people affected by recent floods in Albania. IHH relief teams have so far distributed food packages to 5,000 people and will send more aid
Albania, Balkans 14.01.2010

Shkoder and Lezhe towns and as well as villages in the area came under flooding after heavy rainfall and dam waters were released. There was extensive damage after flooding. The level of flood waters rose by 1.5 and 4 meters in flooded areas. Preliminary survey revealed that 2,949 houses were substantially damaged, while 10,400 hectares farmland was submerged. About 5,000 residents were evacuated from the affected area to safer locations. Local people’s mainstay livestock farming was also hit by floods. Over 10,000 heads of animals perished. The flooding is predicted to have caused a damage of €66 million.      

Water level has reached the maximum level and authorities are worried the risk could get higher. 

The IHH rushed to the affected region and distributed foodstuff to 5,000 people. The foundation will send more relief materials after designating needed relief materials. Donors can hand in their donations to the IHH to be delivered to flood victims.
