Hurricane Matthew

Hurricane Matthew killed hundreds as the powerful storm's fierce winds and pelting rains hammered Haiti, clipped eastern Cuba, and then bashed the Bahamas. The deadly storm brought pounding rain and record-breaking flooding to the Carolinas, making landfall between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Our U.S. Disaster Relief teams have deployed to multiple areas in North and South Carolina to help homeowners in Jesus' Name. Samaritan's Purse has airlifted over 160 tons of hygiene kits, household water filters, blankets, heavy-duty plastic sheeting, and other needed relief supplies to Haiti on our DC-8 in the wake of Hurricane Matthew. A Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) is working with our field staff to coordinate the distribution of these items to thousands of suffering Haitians on the Tiburon peninsula.
