The President of the Republic Ilir Meta remembers the 1st anniversary of the tragic earthquake with a visit to the Blood Transfusion Center.

According to the head of state, it is unacceptable that a year later we still do not have guaranteed housing for many families affected by this disaster.

“We honor the memory of the 51 lives lost by the devastating earthquake and solidarity with their families and all those affected by that natural disaster.

A year later, it is unacceptable, that a safe shelter has not yet been guaranteed for many families hit hardest by the earthquake.

The difficult conditions in which many of them live expose them even more to the pandemic.

Increase all efforts to be as close as possible to them, with as little propaganda as possible and as much work and transparency as possible.

Meanwhile justice must show who was responsible for the scandalous qualities of many palaces and properties of citizens.

Thank you to all friendly countries for the generous assistance to the Albanian people”, said President Meta.
