Responding to COVID-19 Across the Globe

The COVID-19 pandemic has in some way disrupted everyday life for nearly everyone on the planet. Millions of people have lost their jobs. Parents are struggling to provide food for their children. Medical care is a challenge as hospitals and clinics are pushed beyond capacity.

Sadly, more than 6 million people worldwide have been sickened with the coronavirus and more than 400,000 people have died.

Yet, during this time of fear and uncertainty, Samaritan’s Purse continues to serve in Jesus’ Name to help alleviate suffering and to offer the eternal hope of the Gospel.

In addition to our work in the United States, our global field offices (16) and affiliate offices (4) have launched new efforts or adapted projects to support people who are suffering during this global pandemic. We are also partnering with organizations in more than a dozen additional countries to meet urgent needs.

Southeast Asia
In Southeast Asia, teams are working in several countries to provide hygiene kits, hand-washing soap, medical supplies, emergency food, and coronavirus prevention education.
Africa
Among our many projects in Africa we are providing critical medical supplies to those in remote areas while training local health center staff in on how to use personal protective equipment. We continue to provide clean water for drinking and washing as well as emergency food supplies.
Middle East
A Samaritan’s Purse team in the Middle East is serving mothers in Iraq by delivering food and hygiene kits and teaching about stress management.
South America
And in South America, we are offering primary medical care, hygiene training, and emergency food packages to migrant communities along the Colombia-Venezuela border. We’re also working in Bolivia to distribute food and hygiene kits and teach about virus prevention.

Please continue to pray for our teams across the globe as they demonstrate God's love to hurting people during this worldwide crisis.
