What We Do…
Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian organisation demonstrating God’s love by showing mercy and bringing hope to those in greatest need. Samaritan’s Purse is working in over 100 counties. The main focus of the Australian and New Zealand office is Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands.
In disasters, wars and emergencies, children and families are often hardest hit. Samaritan’s Purse provides relief, comfort, physical help and life-saving emergency aid to people affected by disaster, war, famine and poverty.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Every year Operation Christmas Child puts smiles on faces, bringing joy and hope to children in need with gift-filled shoe boxes lovingly packed by families, churches, schools and businesses throughout Australia and New Zealand.
THE GREATEST JOURNEY
The Greatest Journey helps children around the world learn about God, faith and what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ through a fun, interactive discipleship program in their own language, and to receive their very own Bible.
