  • Mission statement

    Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organisation providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ. The organisation serves the Church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Samaritan's Purse currently operates in over 100 countries around the world through emergency disaster response, on-going community development and Operation Christmas Child programmes.

    Emergency Disaster Response: Samaritan's Purse has responded to the eight largest disasters of the past decade, including the Asian Tsunami, the Japan Earthquake, the Haiti Earthquake, The Syria Conflict and the Philippines Typhoon. Over 60,000 volunteer responders have been involved in helping families recover from over 140 separate disasters around the globe to-date.

    Community Development: A quarter of the world's population live in rural areas on less than $2 a day. Samaritan's Purse works with local communities across the developing world to empower struggling families with skills to improve their own livelihoods so they can get better education, access quality healthcare, drink clean water, eat nutritious food and create a safe, secure environment for their kids to be nurtured. Samaritan's Purse is all about providing a future for families in need.
