Families that live off the land are particularly vulnerable to floods, drought, or conflict that can destroy crops or force people from their homes. Samaritan’s Purse works in displacement camps around the world, distributing food staples to hungry families. When disaster strikes, we provide emergency food kits that include rice, beans, soy meal, corn, salt, and cooking oil.
Hot Meals and Feeding Programs
Through local partners, schools, and therapeutic feeding centers, Samaritan’s Purse provides daily meals that fill the nutritional gaps that are so common for poor children. Many are in such desperate need that the meals literally save their lives. In schools, daily breakfasts promote attendance, fuels studies, and nourishes growing bodies.
Milk & Nutrition Projects
We assist with the nutritional needs of children in orphanages, daycare centers, schools, and hospitals. We generally purchase our supplies, including milk, in the countries where we work in order to minimize transportation costs and support the local economy.
