Samaritan's Purse is an nondenominational 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. The organization serves the church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Samaritan's Purse is helping desperate people who have fled the crisis in Afghanistan. We deployed our DC-8 cargo jet loaded with 19 tons of medical kits, hygiene kits, blankets, and other items to the region to assist those who have been evacuated from Afghanistan. The plane also flew in members of our disaster assistance response team (DART), including medical personnel. We have relief specialists working in five different locations where Afghanistan evacuees are temporarily staying.
Through Children’s Heart Project, Samaritan’s Purse brings lifesaving heart surgery to children from countries that do not have the medical facilities or expertise to perform such complex procedures. Samaritan’s Purse transports the sick child along with a parent or guardian to North America—where they stay with a Christian host family—and then undergo an operation donated by a local hospital.
Samaritan’s Purse is bringing clean water to impoverished families, schools, communities, and refugee camps all across the world. We are providing household water filters; digging wells and water pans/ponds; setting up rainwater storage units; and restoring and rehabilitating water pumps, wells, and boreholes that have been unusable for many years. Our teams are also creating sanitation facilities such as hand-washing stations and latrines that will help people avoid waterborne diseases.
The Samaritan's Purse Emergency Field Hospital opened on March 20 in Cremona, Italy, to care for people sickened by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our 14-tent, 68-bed respiratory care unit is set up in the Cremona Hospital parking lot in response to the hospital’s overflow of coronavirus patients. Our DC-8 aircraft transported the mobile medical facility and a large disaster response team, along with urgently needed medical supplies and equipment, to the pandemic's epicenter in northern Italy.
Samaritan’s Purse is responding in the aftermath of a 7.2-magnitude earthquake that jolted southeastern Haiti near Les Cayes. We have set up an Emergency Field Hospital to treat earthquake injuries and provide support in a region now overwhelmed with critical medical needs. In addition to our mobile hospital, we're also also providing emergency shelter material and solar lights, and have set up two water filtration systems in communities without clean water access.
Samaritan's Purse is helping to meet the overwhelming needs of Venezuelan migrants who are fleeing to Colombia. We're offering relief from multiple locations and providing overnight shelter, hygiene kits, food, and medical care.
Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas as a devastating Category 5 storm, damaging and destroying thousands of homes and leaving families without even their most basic needs. Samaritan’s Purse deployed its Emergency Field Hospital and also delivered more than 360 tons of critical relief supplies. Months after the storm, debris removal is still ongoing on the Abaco Islands. Samaritan’s Purse is also repairing homes and churches, and providing long-term relief to families who lost everything.
Samaritan’s Purse has rushed to help people in need in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida. Staff members and three Disaster Relief Units are now on the ground in the hard-hit areas of Houma, Northshore, and Greater New Orleans. As we partner with local churches, volunteer teams are clearing yards, patching roofs, and cleaning out flooded homes.
Samaritan's Purse continues to help meet the long-term physical and spiritual needs of people displaced by ISIS. Our projects include livelihoods programs, setting up child-friendly spaces in the camps, and facilitating the return of Christian families to the Plains of Nineveh by assisting with home and church repairs.
Our Operation Christmas Child project sends gift-filled shoeboxes to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 178 million shoebox gifts to children in more than 160 countries and territories.
Samaritan's Purse mobilizes and equips thousands of volunteers to provide emergency aid to U.S. victims of wildfires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. In the aftermath of major storms, we often stay behind to rebuild houses for people with nowhere else to turn for help.
When natural disasters strike anywhere in our country, Samaritan’s Purse is ready to deploy an army of volunteers to serve alongside hurting homeowners and to bring relief and compassion in Jesus’ Name.
As the medical arm of Samaritan's Purse, World Medical Mission places volunteer Christian physicians, dentists, and other medical personnel in mission hospitals and clinics around the world. We also staff a biomedical department and warehouse that provides critically needed medical equipment and supplies to medical mission facilities.
