U.S. Ambassador donates his March salary for earthquake relief

ZAGREB, March 25 (Croatia Sun News) – U.S. Ambassador in Zagreb Robert Kohorst said on his Twitter profile that he would follow the Prime Minister’s example and donate his March salary for Zagreb’s earthquake relief.

“Given the challenge Croatia is facing, I will follow PM Andrej Plenkovic and the Croatian Government and donate my March salary to help those affected by COVID-19 and the Zagreb Earthquake,” Kohorst tweeted.

“This is the least we can do, considering how Croatia welcomed us to your country,” Kohorst underlined and added #WeStandTogether.

Two strong quakes struck Zagreb on Sunday morning, the first measures 5.5 on Richter scale and the second was 5.0. They were followed by several  tremors. A 15 year-old girl was killed in the quake.

Prime Minister Plenkovic on Tuesday said that he and his government would donate their March salaries for earthquake relief. Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandrokovic said he would donate his salary too and called on lawmakers to do the same.
