MCS gives $76,000 to Iran quake victims

THE Methodist Church in Singapore (MCS) has given close to $76,000 to the victims of the recent earthquake in Iran.

At the beginning of this year, on Jan 2, Bishop Dr Robert Solomon sent a cheque from the MCS for $10,000 to the Singapore Red Cross Society for the relief of the quake victims. In an accompanying letter to the Red Cross, he said: “The Methodist Church in Singapore will continue to remember the victims of this disaster and pray that God’s love, comfort and strength will touch them and encourage them.”

He had also written to all the local Methodist churches urging them to respond to an appeal to help the victims. The response from the churches was encouraging. Another $65,600 was collected and given to the Red Cross.
