Construction Projects

Samaritan’s Purse helps to build communities by constructing houses, schools, hospitals, and churches. Our projects provide shelter for families who lost everything in disasters, education opportunities to help break the cycle of poverty, facilities for physical and spiritual healing, and places to build up the body of Christ.
