U.S. Disaster Relief
When victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine cry out for help, Samaritan’s Purse is often the first to answer. We specialize in meeting critical needs for victims of war, disaster, famine, and epidemics in the world’s most troubled regions, often working through ministry partners already on the scene of a crisis. In the U.S., we quickly respond when hurricanes, tornadoes, and other storms strike, mobilizing staff and volunteers to provide emergency aid to disaster victims.
