Martin Tangstad, ministry leader of Kanal Hayat, says:

"The need is so much greater than we can even imagine. In one night, the earthquake killed 5 times more people than civilian casualties in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. And many, many more are left fearful and hopeless in need of the most positive news ever: the Gospel."

Kanal Hayat, along with First Hope Association, Diyarbakir Church and Antakya Church are committed to serving those suffering in Turkey for many months to come but in order to do that THEY NEED YOUR HELP TODAY!

First Hope Association need money to be able to continue to feed, clothe & house those who have been affected by February’s earthquake. They need to install more mobile hygiene units and erect more trauma healing play tents for children (with activities) as well as building a school in the tent cities of the Hatay region.

Kanal Hayat, in partnership with local churches, are helping more than 300 families who now have first-hand experience of the love and care from believers and are now open and curious about the Gospel.
