Pope Francis has given a Catholic charity in Croatia more than $121,000 for earthquake relief.
The money was given to Caritas, part of the local bishops' conference, to aid families in the Banija region, which was struck by a 6.4-magnitude earthquake last month.
The quake and its foreshocks and aftershocks, which hit on Dec. 29, killed at least seven people, injured dozens, and destroyed homes and churches.
One victim was the organist at the parish church in the town of Žažina, Stanko Zec, who was found dead in the rubble of the church.
