Dear everyone,

As you've heard, a horrible earthquake struck Croatia's small towns Sisak and Petrinja, as well as the neighboring villages. These towns were known as typical industrial towns before the war, afterwards they were mostly forgotten. On December 29, at 12:19, these two towns were hit by a earthquake with a magnitude of 6.4 Richter. Most, if not all buildings and houses were damaged beyond repair. One of these houses was my mother's house. My mother has lived in Petrinja for most of her life and after a tough divorce moved back to her parents' house. The house was very run down from nobody living there ever since my grandfather died back in 2003, but with our combined efforts, we turned it into our loving home. Even though we live in Moscenica, she works in Petrinja caring for the elderly and powerless, along with other women who cover most of these people in Petrinja and its villages. Then the damn earthquake happened...

The house suffered major damage and we don't know the extent nor how long the reparation will take. As it is now, we've been told that staying inside the house is dangerous for our lives and another shock will make it fall apart. As we're desperately trying to find some kind of alternative accommodation, I would like to raise some money to support our mom during these difficult times, while me and my brother are trying to find new jobs during the pandemic. The money will be used for covering living expenses for her and our dog, covering utilities and buying furniture to replace the damaged ones once the house is repaired. She hopes the repaired house will be able to withstand possible future earthquakes. The rest of the money will be sent to other families who are also in need of help, because we need to support each other in these difficult times. Thank you very much and I hope it never happens again!

Description: Donations for house damaged by earthquake


Dragi svi!

Kao što znate, užasan potres pogodio je male hrvatske gradiće Sisak i Petrinju, kao i njihova okolna naselja. Sisak je nekoć bio poznat po svojoj industriji, poput Željezarem dok je Petrinja bila poznata po svojoj mesnoj industriji Gavrilović. Nažalost, nakon Domovinskog rata, oba grada bivaju zaboravljena i od onda se ništa ne ulaže u njih. Na datum 29.12.2020, u 12:19, gradove je pogodio razarajuć potres snage 6.4 Richtera. Većina, ako ne i sve zgrade i kuće su devastirane, uključujući i kuća moje majke. Moja majka je velik dio svog života živjela u Petrinji. Radi u Udruzi za pomoć za starije i nemoćne osobe kao gerontodomaćica te se skupa sa svojim kolegicama i kolegama brine za sve ljude u Petrinji i u okolnim naseljima. Nakon teške rastave, vratili smo se u kuću njenih roditelja. Otkad je djed, njen otac umro 2003. godine, u kući nitko nije živio te je bila poprilično zapuštena i već onda dosta stara. Unatoč tome, uz njenu malu plaću, bratovu pomoć iz inozemstva i uz moju studentsku plaću, uspjeli smo tu kuću pretvoriti u naš topli dom. Radovali smo se završetku godine i boljim vremenima, i onda se dogodio potres...

Kuća je oštećena do te mjere da je opasna po život. Na slikama je vidljivo puknuće u temelju, kako su se raspala oba dimnjaka, oštećenje krova, puknuća zidova te oštećenja stubišta po kojem je zaključeno da se kuća zarotirala. Gornji kat se pomaknuo od prizemlja za par centimetara. Rečeno nam je da će se kuća morati sanirati, ali se ne zna kada će to biti... Dok pokušavamo naći majci i našem psu alternativni smještaj kako bi mogla nastaviti raditi u Petrinji, uz to što brat i ja tražimo nove poslove, htjela bih skupiti nešto novaca za nju kako bi pokrili potencijalne dugove i životne troškove. Nadamo se da će nam obnova barem popraviti krov i dimnjake, te osnažiti ju kako bi mogla (ne daj Bože) izdržati potencijalne nove potrese. Uz to, nakon obnove bi joj kupili nešto namještaja da zamijenimo oštećeno. Ostatak novca proslijedit ćemo svima kojima treba podrška u izgradnji nove kuće jer ovo su vremena kad se moramo međusobno podržavati i čuvati. Hvala vam puno, sretna vam Nova godina 2021. i nadam se da je kraj svim pandemijama i elementarnim nepogodama!
