Pastor T.B Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOANS) was reported to have provided pipe-borne water for Ghana’s Savelugu School for the Deaf, located in the country’s Northern Region.
The project was facilitated by his Man Friday, an Accra High Court Judge, John-Ajet Nassam, at the cost GHC23, 000, 00, in Ghananian currency. Joshua was said to have also donated food items, detergents and other valuables to the school. Assistant Headmistress of the school, Amenyoku Akuvi, lauded Joshua’s gesture.
“Getting water to bath and clean our places has been a very big problem for us here but since this intervention has come we get water, we drink, we clean, we are so happy: we have no words to quantify our happiness but all that we have to say is Jehovah who is in heaven has seen the good work he has done for us and will continue to support us,” she said.
Joshua is currrently facing a coroner’s inquest into the collapse of a guest house in his church last year. The collapse caused the death of many South Africans, who came to seeking spiritual healing by the controversial pastor. While his followers strongly believe Joshua possess supernatural healing powers, his critics say he engages in pretended miracle healing.
