SAT-7 TÜRK Supports Earthquake Survivors While Mourning Losses

ISTANBUL, TURKEY — While the team from Christian media ministry SAT-7 TÜRK has also been impacted by the devastating earthquake, they are doing everything they can to support their viewers, survivors, and those in desperate need.

Gulsum Ilola, the Deputy Executive of SAT-7 TÜRK shares how many of their staff have lost loved ones and their homes, but they remain determined to do all they can to help the community at this very challenging and difficult time.

Gulsum Ilolathe Deputy Executive of SAT-7 TÜRK:

What we do in SAT-7 TÜRK in all our programs, especially the live programs, people can call us. We are supporting them, we are with them. We are giving psychological help. We have people in our team who are voluntarily working in some municipalities.

We try to send help over there. At the same time on our news webpage we are giving the news from the area. In our own team we have people who lost their relatives. We have people from that area who lost their homes. Even though they survived the earthquake they are now desperate and homeless.

Please pray for us. Please pray for our country right now. It’s been just a few days. Some people still hear some voices from the debris, from the streets, so they try to reach these people.
And it’s very cold. Please pray that the emergency services can rescue the people and pray for the people that need food. Please pray that God will provide homes for homeless people
