"Samaritanís Purse is an international relief and development organisation that works through local churches to proclaim and demonstrate the love of God amongst communities in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. We are part of the global Samaritanís Purse family that has been providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world since 1970. Samaritanís Purse also has offices in the USA, Canada, Germany, and Australia.
Even if you donít recognise the name, you may have come across our Operation Christmas Child initiative, which thousands of churches, schools and businesses across the UK and Ireland are already part of.
But we do more than just send shoeboxes overseas. We respond in a distinctly Christian way to issues facing people in the places where we work: issues like water and sanitation and sustainable livelihoods along with disasters and emergencies."
