Program areas at Samaritan's Purse

Operation christmas child: through this project, Samaritan's Purse collects and delivers gift-filled shoeboxes to millions of hurting children around the world. We do this to demonstrate god's love, gain a hearing for the gospel, and share the true meaning of christmas-the birth of jesus christ, our lord and savior. Jesus told us, "go therefore and make disciples of all the nations" (matthew 28:19). In 2019, operation christmas child reached boys and girls in more than 100 countries with 10,569,405 gift boxes, including 8,950,144 collected in the u.s. (others come from canada, the united kingdom, germany, finland, spain, and australia.) Since 1993, occ has handed out over 179 million shoebox gifts. National collection week will be nov. 16-23, 2020, at thousands of locations across the u.s.
South sudan relief: Samaritan's Purse distributed food rations to more than 529,000 people and supplementary food to over 77,500 women and children at risk of malnutrition. We also provided over 590 million liters of clean water to refugees. Our international medical teams at maban hospital served 4,695 patients and performed 2,613 surgeries. Over 3,100 people received bibles, and more than 168,000 heard the gospel through the jesus film and other programs facilitated by local churches-many of these churches constructed by Samaritan's Purse since 2005. "for he satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness" (psalm 107:9).
U.s. Disaster relief: more than 14,800 volunteers served with our north american ministries in 2019 and helped over 4,600 households. Teams responded to hurricane dorian in the bahamas and north carolina and repaired or rebuilt 114 houses for storm victims in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, and the carolinas. Disaster relief teams responded to tornadoes in Alabama, Texas, Ohio, Missouri, and Alabama; floods in Nebraska, Michigan, Oklahoma, and north carolina; and a wildfire in California. Our volunteers also built churches in two Alaskan villages. On the texas-mexico border, more than 120 volunteers worked to help desperate immigrants. "for all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: "you shall love your neighbor as yourself" (galatians 5:14).
