When food runs out, hope is scarce. It’s a situation often seen in countries where people are left to starve because of natural disasters, war and genocide, and widespread poverty. Samaritan’s Purse is committed to reaching out to the hungry with both physical and spiritual nourishment. In some cases, our work is in response to a natural disaster or wartime crisis, and focuses on blanket feeding of a large group of people. Other times, we address a chronic lack of food or nutrition brought on by famine and poverty.

Please pray for these people and those delivering aid, and consider donating to help continue changing lives.
