About us


 Helping in Jesus’ Name


The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.”

For over 35 years, Samaritan’s Purse has followed Christ’s command, travelling the world’s highways and providing critical, life-saving aid and relief for the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. As these victims recover and get back on their feet, we empower and equip them through ongoing, sustainable development that transforms the lives of families and communities.

In this way, Samaritan’s Purse fulfils its mission.
