Croatian Bishop thanks Hungary for earthquake aid

Bishop Vlado Košić thanked Hungary and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for aiding those affected by a deadly earthquake late last year.

 

Bishop Vlado Košić, leader of the Roman Catholic diocese of Sisak (Sziszek) in central Croatia, has thanked Hungary for aiding those affected by a deadly earthquake late last year.

In a letter, the bishop praised Hungary and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for being the first EU member state to have extended the fastest and most extensive help to the diocese hit hard by the earthquake on December 28-29, which killed seven people and injured 28.

The bishop said Hungarian government officials had recently informed him about a decision to rebuild a school in the town of Petrinja and a church in Žažina, in the region. “I take this opportunity to express my respect to you and thank you for your standing up for the cause of national and Christian identity in the European Union,” the bishop concluded his letter.
