SCOAN’s partners donate £10,000 to Turkey earthquake relief
The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) and its Emmanuel TV partners have donated £10,000 as relief support to victims of the recent earthquake that devastated some parts of Turkey and Syria.
The 7.8 magnitude earthquake which occurred on February 6, 2023, and the aftershocks that followed, led to the death of more than 47,000.
Some 4.6 million children living in the Turkish provinces where the earthquake took place were badly hit by the disaster leaving the country in disarray of a gigantic humanitarian needs
The Turkish community groups living on the UK particularly in Hackney and Haringey Boroughs of North London have since mobilised themselves into raising donations and relief items to Turkey.
One of such groups is the London Alevi Cultural Centre and CEMEVI both working with other organisations to provide money and relief items.
It is through these acknowledged organizations that SCOAN’s Emmanuel TV Partners Relief/Charity donated £10,000 to help in resettling displaced people and give them a new lease of life.
Commenting on the donation, SCOAN leader, Pastor Evelyn Joshua described the earthquake as a “great humanitarian calamity”, calling on all “true human beings to please partake in bringing relief to our fellow human beings now in critical life conditions as a result of these terrible earthquakes.”
She added: “God is love, we are His image and we must live and lead in love.
:Every kindness you heartily show at this period of their needs illustrates clearly the place of love in human affairs as a tool of human relationships and good neighborliness.”
Assuring that SCOAN would continue to sustain the lofty legacy of humanitarianism and altruism of its founder, Prophet TB Joshua, she said the foundation of the Church was Love as shown in the Commission’s logo.
She praised the partners all over the world for their spirit and readiness to render selfless services to fellow human beings.
