Helping Those in Need and Proclaiming the Hope of the Gospel
International Humanitarian Aid in Jesus' Name
After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan's Purse—to follow the example of Christ, working with the local church to demonstrate the love of God to people in need around the world.
Helping in Jesus' Name
International Crisis Response
When victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, and disease cry for help, we are often the first to answer. We specialise in meeting critical needs among the world’s most troubled regions. We also work through the local church and ministry partners on the ground to provide emergency aid to disaster victims.
About 1.58 million people die each year from diseases caused by unclean water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene habits. The majority of these are children in developing countries. Providing clean water and health and hygiene education helps protect our world from infectious disease.
