Samaritan’s Purse has deployed our Emergency Field Hospital to a recently liberated area in Ukraine. Our facility opened Oct. 3, and we are already treating patients and performing surgeries. Our DC-8 aircraft is scheduled to bring more medical supplies this week.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Health has asked Samaritan’s Purse to provide medical support to these areas where the need is great. We continue to work in cooperation with local partners.

Samaritan’s Purse also continues to treat patients through an emergency outpatient medical facility in southwestern Ukraine.

In addition to our medical work, we are providing food and non-food items to suffering families in Ukraine. In partnership with local churches, we are transporting these urgently needed relief supplies to families suffering in areas impacted by conflict.

Our Response So Far

Samaritan’s Purse has served more than 6 million people throughout the first seven months of this response. We have distributed over 33,000 metric tons of food within Ukraine in partnership with the local church. Our water systems and newly constructed freshwater wells have provided more than 15 million liters of water to Ukrainians.

Thirty-one airlift missions have brought relief for those struggling inside Ukraine. Twenty-nine of these have been carried out through our DC-8 cargo jet, bringing in hundreds of tons of relief items, including our Emergency Field Hospital, medical supplies, food, and hygiene kits.

We operated an Emergency Outpatient Clinic in central Ukraine and our Emergency Field Hospital in Lviv earlier this year; both closed in mid-June. Through these two facilities, we treated more than 5,000 patients—a large part of the more than 18,000 patients we’ve cared for thus far in Ukraine.
