One year ago, Words of Hope partnered with Radio Shema in Turkey to purchase a new radio station in the city of Antalya. Antalya is a cosmopolitan city located on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. Today this station is enabling the good news to reach not only Turkish residents, but also Turkish-speaking tourists who visit the country from Europe or Central Asia.
Words of Hope’s Director of Operations, Adam Navis, says, “Radio stations include hardware, station licenses, and ongoing staff costs. We only approve station purchases when we know they will be a strategic investment. With everything going on in Turkey right now, from the attempted coup to Syrian refugees, we knew that anything we could do to spread messages of hope and peace would be worth the cost. Partnering with Radio Shema gives us the ability to make sure our investment will continue to bear fruit for years to come.”
