MOL donates to victims of Croatia earthquake

Int’l Relations

Hungarian oil and gas company MOL has donated 50 heated container accommodation units to temporarily house people who have been displaced because of the recent earthquakes in Croatia, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in Petrinja, near the epicenter of the quakes, on Friday, according to telex.hu.

The insulated, outfitted containers, provided at a cost of HUF 45 million, can house 50 families, Szijjártó said. MOL has also donated six toilet and washroom containers for those affected by the earthquakes, he added. MOL is a stakeholder and holds management rights in Croatian oil and gas company INA.

One of INA's industrial bases, in Sisak, was close to the epicenter of the quakes but had only minimal damage. Szijjártó said Hungary's Tungsram has also donated 5,000 lighting units to those displaced by the earthquakes. Hungary's government has committed to participate in the renovation of a local church and school, he added.
