I am still waking up from the shock that the earthquake created. I am watching with horror all the videos coming out and for a time felt so helpless.
We did have our share of scares when everything around us was shaking but it is nothing compared to what Turkey and Syria are experiencing.
I wish I could be there, I wish I could help.
But then I realized I could! Maybe I can’t physically be there, but I can support the workers there; the churches there. So I contacted several of our friends in Turkey and in the churches in Aleppo and Latakia and asked them what can we do.
So many people lost their homes and are taking refuge in a church, a mosque, a shelter, etc. and they lack everything. The main thing is heating. It is the worst time for the earthquake as temperatures are below freezing and people need fuel, blankets, coats, etc. Of course, they also need medicine and milk for babies. Really, there is much need.
Syria is already devastated by war and was struggling to even provide basic needs like bread. And now this catastrophe made the situation even more tragic and people are not able to cope.
How can Triumphant Mercy help? We have been working with Syrian refugees and churches in Syria for the past six years. We have people and contacts on the ground are are able to provide support and relief.
Will you give today and help us answer the call of the Lord to give and meet needs in this unfathomable disaster and unthinkable suffering?
Much love and thank you for all the help you are giving. Of course, we also need prayers because nothing is easy in this part of the world.
For Triumphant Mercy,
