Haiti Earthquake Response

Samaritan’s Purse is responding in the wake of a 7.2-magnitude earthquake that overwhelmed southern Haiti.

In addition to the 36-bed field hospital, a team of disaster response specialists is continuing to bringing emergency aid to hurting families in the hardest-hit areas—including shelter material and water filtration units.
