AS EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL UNFOLD, EVERYONE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA ARE FACING UNPRECEDENTED CHALLENGES. IT IS THREATENING TO TEAR APART COMMUNITIES.
Social, political, and economic tensions all contribute to a sense of hopelessness. That is why we create programs that spread hope and joy to over 21.5 million people facing trials of all kinds.
Through creating programs based on in-depth research. Programs that reaches people on multiple levels. For families in the midst of violence and war, programs like Bedtime Stories is a gift. It teaches children about Christ while reassuring parents struggling to help their children understand the violence they have seen. For believers struggling with depression, the loss of a loved one, or other spiritual struggles, praise programs like the live show We Will Sing gives viewers a sense of peace as they call in with prayer requests. Still other programs like God and the Persecuted, a Farsi program that reaches isolated believers, helps Iran's growing house churches "develop techniques of endurance" to persevere through widespread persecution. All work to reach the lost, down-trodden, and hopeless.
What does SAT-7 do to help individuals struggling with depression, physical disabilities, and an over-all sense of hopelessness?
At the heart of our initiative to reach individuals facing varying circumstances is a focus on people as people. Regardless of background, beliefs, or experiences, SAT-7 provides platforms from which individuals find healing. Our Viewer Support Team reaches individuals through secure social media avenues and call centers to provide counselling. Using the secure app Telegram®, we reach isolated believers in Iran to provide needed spiritual programs, chat services, and Biblical papers. Our live programs answer calls on the air, connecting with people to answer questions and to pray together. This then turns into a life-long relationship between us and the viewer as we show them that they are loved regardless of what they are facing. Other programs address misconceptions about disabilities, social injustices, and Christianity to create an open dialogue and promote tolerance regardless of differences. Together, these efforts are creating positive change in the Middle East.
Together, we know that these efforts have helped millions.
Every day, over 2,000 individuals get needed advice, spiritual guidance, and counselling via the app Telegram®
4.6 million children are finding healthy ways to cope with the violence and death they have seen.
Over 21 million have access to programs on mental and physical health. These programs help to provide counseling and needed information that saves lives when healthcare isn't readily available.
How do we bridge the gap when humanitarian aid isn't enough?
Where aid workers can't go, SAT-7 is there. For the 6 million displaced in Syria, SAT-7 is oftentimes the only means of escaping the bombings and sense of doom. For the 5 million who have fled to neighboring countries, our programs provide a sense of normalcy; children feel safe watching SAT-7. Parents trust us so SAT-7 has become a staple in the homes of many. Thus, our educational programming provides the 13 million children unable to attend school the ability to continue their education.
Reaching people beyond borders, beyond war-zones, we are providing a life-line to needed stability, love, and hope.
Millions across 25 countries are getting needed advice, guidance, and encouragement.
Over 3 million children are retaining the last bit of their childhood by watching our Youtube channel and conversing on our website.
50 million Turks have the opportunity to learn about Christianity. We address misconceptions and bring about healing as well as comfort during uncertain times.
When the situation is dire, how do we help provide needed supplies?
Partnerships are the key to success in the Middle East. By partnering with on-the-ground humanitarian aid groups, we are providing needed supplies. We are also connecting them with counseling and medical professionals to get the most downtrodden the support they need. Partnering with groups like Heart for Lebanon has enabled both ministries to reach out to people in even the most remote locations. All to provide hope and love.
