Samaritan’s Purse


Mission Statement

Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His son, Jesus Christ. The organization serves the church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Overview of Ministry Activity

Franklin Graham is the president of Samaritan’s Purse. We now work in over 130 countries, in line with our mission statement. Since our work is with those affected by war, poverty, natural disasters, disease and famine, we often focus on children. They are the real victims in most of these situations. Whenever possible, we work through the indigenous Christian churches, to enable them to minister to those in need. Samaritan’s Purse supports projects for street children, orphans and abandoned children in many areas of the world.

Plans and Goals

Our desire as an organization is to continue to do what our mission statement says, but on a larger scale, as the Lord provides funds and opportunities. We do have a heart to do more in the area of ministry to street children. We would like to learn from those who have successful ministries to these children, so we might be more effective in helping those with the desire, but without the expertise and resources to do so.
