TB Joshua thanked by Ecuador for donations

20 July 2016, 21:30

Lagos - Ecuador has expressed gratitude to TB Joshua’s gesture of goodwill after he helped donate relief material to the country hit by an earthquake.

On April 16, the South American nation suffered a colossal earthquake of magnitude 7.8.

The severity of the disaster reverberated throughout the entire country, leaving at least 500 dead and 27 500 injured.

Moved by the plight of Ecuadorians, TB Joshua – Founder of Emmanuel TV – sent a relief team to Esmeraldas Province, and dispatched a Boeing 727 Cargo Plane, which contained 20 tonnes of relief hygiene material, perishable and non-perishable food stuff.

The relief efforts have aided over 5 000 Ecuadorians, totaling over US$500 000.

TB Joshua’s church station reported that upon arrival, the relief and aid supplies were received by representatives of government before the Armed Forces of Ecuador loaded the aid into army trucks and transported to the Emmanuel TV Operations Center, situated close to Esmeraldas City before distribution to various shelters.

The Emmanuel TV Team also extended its relief efforts to a remote village, Chachi de San Salvador, which had also been gravely affected by the quake in the areas of access to clean water and the destruction of its local school.

In response to this particular community’s needs, TB Joshua’s team supplied the community with equipment that converts river and unclean water into potable water.

The Team is also doing a school construction project – at a cost of US$262000 – to rebuild the entire school complex that was destroyed.

The reconstructed school will provide learning facilities for 350 students.

The people of Ecuador, as well as its Government, continue to express their gratitude for the Emmanuel TV Ecuador Relief efforts, TB Joshua's publicist said.

A grateful beneficiary, from the Chachi community, is quoted as saying, “This is the first aid we have received from another country.”
