About Samaritan’s Purse

Helping in Jesus’ Name

Samaritan’s Purse specialises in meeting the immediate, critical needs of victims of conflict, disaster, famine, and epidemics throughout the world, providing emergency food, water, shelter, medicine and other life-saving emergency aid and assistance. Initial emergency relief transitions to recovery and then to ongoing sustainable development. Through these 3 phases Samaritan’s Purse fulfils its mission.
