Families affected by the major flooding on 6 August began receiving assistance from the advance payment fund that was set up to help them until damage can be assessed. More than 2.000 people from Skopje and Tetovo are eligible to collect a 500 EUR advance payment after they have submitted their contact details to the Finance Ministry.
"Payments will continue in the coming period, according to the information that are being delivered to the Commission set up to estimate damages", said Finance Minister Kiril Minoski.
The Government informed that families will be reimbursed to the full amount of damage to their homes they have suffered. They can register by phone to the Finance Ministry, or by texting 070-271-410 with their name and bank account details.
