Kosovo Government allocates EUR 400.000 for Katrina victims

Prishtina, September 7, 2005 – Despite the limited budget, Kosovo’s Government decided in its regular meeting yesterday to allocate EUR 400,000 for the families hit by hurricane Katrina.

Kosovo Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi said that this assistance, although small, expresses the compassion of the Government and the people of Kosovo for the American people, who faced with natural disasters these days.

“Government and the people of Kosovo will never forget the help of American people given to Kosovo in all aspects: political, military, and financial aspect,” Prime Minister Kosumi said. According to him, these means will be distributed by the American Red Cross.

“This is a small amount of money, but it is our great will and desire to be with the American people in these difficult days,” Kosumi said.
