The World is Waiting for You…

The Need

When disasters strike around the world, Samaritan’s Purse responds immediately, quickly mobilising staff and experienced relief workers to partner with local churches to provide critically needed disaster relief to people in need.

We work in over 100 countries, addressing critical needs such as food, clean water, shelter and medicine. We also help hurting homeowners in Australia and New Zealand who are devastated by natural disasters.

Our Response

We have responded to devastating floods and bushfires in Australia and New Zealand, crisis in places like Ukraine, Israel and Palestine, earthquakes in the Middle East and Haiti, typhoons and cyclones in places like the Philippines; and large-scale refugee crises in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

We also send teams to fight infectious diseases such as Ebola and Covid-19. After news of these disasters end, our work has only just begun. We are committed to the long term support and recovery of people in need, as well as spreading good news and great joy to children around the world with our project Operation Christmas Child.
