On 29 December 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck the central part of Croatia. It killed several people, injured many more and caused extensive damage to homes and infrastructure. The European Commission helped coordinate the emergency response and facilitated the delivery of urgently needed assistance.

Through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, 15 countries sent immediate assistance, including housing containers, winterised tents, sleeping bags, beds, and electric heaters.
