Samaritan's Purse is a non-denominational evangelical Christian organization providing
spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan's Purse has
helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine
with the purpose of sharing God's love through His Son, Jesus Christ.
INTERNATIONAL CRISIS RESPONSE
Samaritan's Purse stands ready to respond at a moment's notice whenever and wherever disaster strikes.
We specialize in meeting critical needs for victims of conflict, disaster, famine, and epidemics throughout
the world, often working through ministry partners on the ground. We provide food, water, shelter,
medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ
PREPARED TO RESPOND
We pre-position supplies in warehouses strategically located around the world so we can quickly respond
to crises. When disaster strikes, we deploy Disaster Assistance Response Teams comprised of experienced
professionals trained in meeting the needs of disaster victims. Back at international headquarters, our Incident
Management Team ensures that supplies are flowing and provides other support to our staff on the ground.
FOOD AND WATER
After a disaster, food and water can mean the difference between life and death. We provide
emergency food kits that typically include staples such as rice, beans, soy meal, corn, salt, and
cooking oil. Contaminated water supplies are purified with packets that remove harmful
micro-organisms. We install community filtration systems that can purify up to 10,000 gallons
per day, enough to provide for 2,500 people.
Quality healthcare is crucial in the days following a crisis. Samaritan's Purse stocks hospitals and clinics
with medicines and supplies, and we also send fully equipped mobile medical teams
to reach people who have no other access to medical help.
People who have lost their homes face greater exposure to the elements and the threat of sickness and
disease. Samaritan's Purse provides blankets, tents, poles, and heavy-duty plastic sheeting in
disaster situations. We often construct transitional shelters, giving families a place to live while they recover.
A storm or earthquake can leave survivors without the basics of daily life. When Samaritan's Purse responds
we often start by handing out needed supplies, including cooking utensils, hygiene items, blankets, water buckets, and other
What we are tempted to call a disaster is sometimes the first painful stage of a blessing.
