What is DART?

The Samaritan’s Purse International Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) program is committed to meeting the critical needs of victims of war, poverty, famine, disease, and natural disaster. We stand ready to respond at a moment’s notice whenever and wherever disaster strikes. The DART specialises in providing water, food, shelter, and medical care while sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Who is on a DART?

The DART is composed of a roster of on-call professionals trained to respond within a complex international environment to save lives and reduce suffering in the name of Jesus Christ. “We are ambassadors for Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:20).

Our DART members work in the midst of devastation and tragedy. We need flexible people who can overcome daunting logistical challenges to bring help to those who need it most. Every DART needs resourceful and competent professionals experienced in providing international assistance, program management, administration, logistics, communications, and medical care.
