Hello dear friends,
even though it is uncommon to post articles about Real Life, still, we feel the need to change that.
As you may know, bad things are happening lately to our Real Life close friends, which is why we would like to dedicate this article as a form of support, among others..
On Tuesday, the Turkish, and World’s public was shaken with breaking news about explosion and fire at the mine in Soma, western Turkey, where unfortunately 284 people are confirmed dead, and 18 miners are still missing.

The Soma mining disaster is already the deadliest industrial catastrophe in Turkey’s history, and we sincerely hope it will be the last one! Condolences to all that lost any relatives, Macedonia hopes the best for you, brothers!
As if this wasn’t enough, hard times are also facing our brothers in Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia. These are the worst floods ever recorded in the last 120 years! Over 4.000 people are evacuated and the city of Obrenovac is fully under water. Serbia and Bosnia asked for help, and our country of course answered in no time, among other neighbor countries like Bulgaria, Slovenia, and even Russia.
Macedonian buses with volunteers and material help
Macedonia has contributed so far with one helicopter MI-17, 9 boats for rescuing, 75 flood experts from the Ministry of Defense, 45 pumps, medics and various kinds of drugs, 3.000 blankets, 30 members of quick response team for rescuing, 15 members of special unit, a company donated 50.000 liters of water and many more.. Macedonian Government and the Energy Companies of Macedonia have also decided they will help Serbia by sending electrical energy in what should be 80 MW (MegaWatts) per hour.
Plus today 18.04.2014 we had enormous humanitarian action all over Macedonia. This actions will continue every day. You can see pictures from this action in this GALERY

It is worth mentioning that since Serbia was facing such a disaster in Real Life, our alliance, Aurora ceased all kind of hostility and warfare towards Serbia.
This is after all just a game, and no matter the relations we have here, we never forget the real connections between us, the real bonds that tie us. A friend in need is a friend indeed!
