Fast Effective Disaster Response

"You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry." Psalm 10:17 (NIV).

Since 2009, you have enabled us to respond to over 112 disasters around the world. Our mission is to bring hope and light in the darkest situations as fast as we can when disaster strikes. Working through the local church and ministry partners on the ground, utilising all our experience in food distribution, water, sanitation and hygiene, shelter and medical services in Jesus Name.

With your prayers and support we are able to step into places of suffering with the sole purpose of glorifying God by serving others. Together we make Jesus' Name known in some of the most crisis-stricken areas of the globe.

"The work of the Good Samaritan is never over. We want to bring hope and healing wherever we can. When there is a crisis, we don't run from it. We run to it." - Franklin Graham President - Samaritan's Purse
