Hurricane Matthew International US Response
Hurricane Matthew
Samaritan's Purse is bringing physical and spiritual relief to survivors of Hurricane Matthew in the U.S. and Caribbean. As a Category 4 storm, Matthew caused catastrophic damage in Haiti and the Bahamas, killing more than a thousand people—most of them in Haiti. We have airlifted over 100 tons of hygiene kits, water filters, blankets, and heavy-duty plastic sheeting to Haiti, with more relief being airlifted soon. We are also establishing two cholera treatment centers there as well. An additional airlift brought relief to the Bahamas. Our U.S. Disaster Relief teams and tractor-trailer units have deployed to North and South Carolina to help affected homeowners there.
