World Missions Alliance Launches Urgent Relief Effort to Assist Earthquake Victims in Turkey

In a devastating earthquake that hit Turkey, around 40,000 people lost their lives and many more were left injured and displaced.

The tragedy was especially devastating for marginalized Kurdish communities who are struggling to survive.

However, the World Missions Alliance is now spearheading a relief effort to provide much-needed assistance to those affected by the earthquake.

Chuck Todd, the president of the World Missions Alliance, sent an urgent message from Pristina in Kosovo, asking for support for the relief effort.

He stated that the organization’s ministry partner, Pastor Rezo, from Georgia, had received a request for help from the Turkish Kurds, and they were now preparing to launch a mission to deliver food packs, blankets, coats, and other necessities to the most affected areas, including Marash, Adiaman, and Diyarbakir.

Pastor Rezo is a Kurd himself, and his extensive experience in working with the Kurdish communities makes him well-equipped to provide the kind of support that is most urgently needed in this situation. However, he is facing logistical and financial challenges, and this is why he needs help.

The World Missions Alliance is now calling on individuals to support the mission by making donations that will help cover the fuel costs, as well as any supplies or equipment that may be needed for the relief effort.

The organization is urging people to give generously and spread the word to their friends, family, and colleagues so that they can maximize their impact and reach as many people as possible.

The relief mission is scheduled to leave in seven days, and time is of the essence.

Chuck Todd urged people to pray for the safety and protection of Pastor Rezo and his team as they embark on this mission to bring light to the darkness of those who have suffered a great tragedy.

“Please agree with me in prayer that God protects and provides for Pastor Rezo and his team to be the light in the darkness to the people who have suffered a great tragedy,” Todd said.

To donate, individuals can visit or mail their gifts to P.O. Box 1067, Branson West, MO 65737, marked “Help for Turkey.”
