After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan’s Purse – to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel.

 

Samaritan’s Purse is an international relief and development organisation that works through local churches to proclaim and demonstrate the love of God among communities in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.  Samaritan’s Purse also has offices in the USACanadaGermany, and Australia.

Even if you don’t recognise the name, you may have come across their Operation Christmas Child initiative, which thousands of churches, schools and businesses across the UK and Ireland are already part of.

But they do more than just send shoe boxes overseas. They 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.

They believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and are committed to seeing this Gospel shared in the form of both words (that can change spiritual circumstances) and acts of mercy (that can change physical circumstances).​

There vision is to see transformation – of both individual lives and whole communities. They long to see people restored in their relationship with God and with each other and for their circumstances to be turned around.​ Please support the Work that Samaritan's purse do by donating via the link below.

 

Your money will go towards providing help for for children across the world.  The target to reach by the end of 2018 is £230. Every penny raised goes directly to young people in need of help and assistance.
