As of writing this note on Tuesday afternoon, the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake in northern Syria and south-east Turkey has already claimed the lives of more than 6,000 people, with tens of thousands others known to be injured.
Along with many relief organizations, our denomination's Presbyterian World Service & Development (PWS&D) has been offering support through partner organizations.
See the following news item on the home page of PWS&D: Response to Earthquake in Syria and Turkey which also shows how to donate financially to support their relief efforts. Scroll down to the bottom of the article to find the donate button and follow the prompts.
You can also donate through Knox Church, either on Sunday through an offering, or through e-transfer, Canada Post, or dropping off a donation at our Centre 120 Door mailbox. In all cases, be sure to make a note that the donation is designated toward PWS&D Syria & Turkey Earthquake Relief.
In addition to any support you can offer, please be in prayer for the people of Syria and Turkey.
