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 wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.”
For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done its utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. We are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Samaritan’s Purse travels the world’s highways looking for victims along the way. Like the Samaritan, we bandage the wounds of those in greatest need. The work is often dangerous but the Samaritan didn’t stop there and neither do we. After meeting the immediate, critical needs, we help these victims recover and get back on their feet. Then we equip and empower them through ongoing sustainable development that transforms the lives of families and whole communities.
In this way, Samaritan’s Purse fulfils its mission.
