“Our rapid response to the relief efforts is due to our belief in the importance of solidarity in difficult times and crises. This is part of our responsibility towards the international and local communities. It reflects a clear and consistent strategy developed by the Municipality to contribute to the efforts of community development at all levels, especially in crises and disasters,” he added.
