About Samaritan's Purse

Our mission is to follow the example of Jesus Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel.

Since 1973, we’ve been reaching out to victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love. Millions of lives have been changed, both physically and spiritually.

The majority of our ministry is carried out by partnering with passionate, competent churches and organizations in the countries where we work—and by partnering financially with people like you. When it comes to handling our finances with integrity, we’re pleased to have consistently received an overall A grade from Moneysense magazine. Ninety per cent of every donated dollar goes directly to our mission.
