7. ELONA AND THE ALBANIAN BLOOD FEUD

I was pleased to have a coffee meeting with Elona Prroj who has established a special ministry to address the challenging gjakmarrja or blood feud, part of the ancient Albanian Kanun code of behaviour, still prevalent in the north. Elona’s husband Tani a church pastor was killed through this code in 2010. Her organisation No Blood Feud, Yes to Life Foundation speaks to governments, the European Union and churches (across the denominations) about this evil practice. Elona is a good friend and supporter of Rachel and the Shkëndijë Foundation.
