“Following the devastating earthquake, TB Joshua and his Emmanuel TV Team chartered two cargo planes to dispatch life-saving relief materials into Haiti. His team established Clinique Emmanuel, a field hospital that rendered medical services to the community, including food supply, financial assistance and community development support, to facilitate relief efforts in Haiti.

“TB Joshua mobilised his Emmanuel TV Team and sent them to the Philippines, along with much-needed relief materials and funds, to assist the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. Collaborating with local volunteers, His Emmanuel TV team dispatched food items that were taken by ship to Leyte Island, the most damaged region, demonstrating his commitment to global humanitarianism.

“TB Joshua regularly reached out to various IDP camps in Nigeria, offering shelter, food, clothing and medical care to internally displaced individuals. Of note was his donation of N10 million to an IDP camp in Abuja to help the camp chairman address the rampant sickness in the camp, which was a major concern.”

On his contribution to education and empowerment, the statement read, “Understanding the transformative power of education, TB Joshua dedicated resources to improve access to quality education for underprivileged communities. His initiatives included scholarships. Hundreds of deserving students facing financial constraints have benefited from different categories of scholarship grants from TB Joshua, which has seen many of them graduate from prestigious institutions including Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, and UCL.

“He supported the construction and renovation of schools, ensuring students had conducive learning environments. Perhaps the most notable example of his contribution in this area was his donation of a school in San Salvador de Los Chachi, Ecuador, following the devastating Earthquake that struck the South American nation in 2016. In Nigeria, he built classrooms for local schools, including schools in Muslim communities such as Muslim College, Isolo, Egbe, Lagos.”

The statement added that Joshua’s commitment to healthcare was reflected in his regular provision of medical assistance to patients who were in need.

“TB Joshua’s commitment to healthcare was reflected in his efforts to provide medical assistance to those in need. He provided numerous healthcare support, including medical missions and support for medical facilities. TB Joshua played a significant role in establishing and maintaining healthcare facilities, ensuring that communities had access to essential medical services. He notably supported the kidney division of the Beit Jala Hospital in Bethlehem, West Bank, by purchasing six new dialysis machines to help the patients.

“Additionally, he contributed 100,000ILS ($30,000) to the Galilee Medical Centre, the largest hospital in the Galilee region of Northern Israel, which serves a diverse population of Jews, Christians, Muslims and Druze.

On the late clergy’s contributions to social welfare, community development and economic empowerment, the statement noted that “TB Joshua’s philanthropic activities extended to various social welfare and community development projects aimed at improving the quality of life for marginalised populations.

His widows’ forum program served as a sanctuary for deserted widows, many of whom found solace and support through his initiatives.

Two members of the team went to play for Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets in the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
