URGENT APPEAL: Rushing Relief to Hurricane Beryl Survivors

Samaritan’s Purse is responding to urgent needs in the Caribbean after the carnage caused by category 5 Hurricane Beryl. Winds of up to 175 mph have left entire communities demolished. Will you help the survivors in Jesus’ Name?

 

Send Aid To Hurricane Survivors

 

On Monday, July 1, the storm began pummelling islands in the south-eastern Caribbean. Grenada’s Carriacou Island suffered a direct hit, and many of its families are without homes, food, running water, or electricity. These people are in urgent need of assistance.

Less than 24 hours after the hurricane made landfall, the Samaritan’s Purse DC-8 cargo plane departed North Carolina for Grenada, carrying 22,000 kg of life-saving supplies and 13 disaster response specialists—ready to serve the suffering in Jesus’ Name. 

Since then there have been two more airlifts transporting more supplies and an Emergency Field Hospital, and we are now responding across three countries: Jamaica, St Vincent, and Grenada.

“My prayer is that our Emergency Field Hospital, DART (Disaster Assistance Response Team) members, and the rest of these life-saving supplies will be a blessing to those who are suffering and remind them that God loves them and that they are not forgotten.”

—Franklin Graham, President of Samaritan’s Purse

On the ground, our teams are working alongside local church partners throughout the Caribbean to distribute the emergency shelter materials, solar lights, food, and clean water. Our medical teams are providing care for the injured and sick.

The hurricane has flattened many essential facilities such as hospitals. There is an urgent need for aid. Will you help?

 

Give Hope To Survivors 

Most importantly, please pray for the many island communities suffering in the aftermath of this hurricane, for our local church partners, and for our team as we respond in Jesus’ Name. 

God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.

—Psalm 46:1
