Responding in Brazil after Catastrophic Floods

Samaritan’s Purse has sent four planeloads of aid to the South American country, and our Disaster Assistance Response Team is on the ground aiding flood victims.

An onslaught of heavy rainfall has wreaked havoc on the southernmost region of Brazil, submerging entire communities and displacing thousands. Damage to infrastructure has led to a lack of clean water and mass power outages. Over 140 people have died from the floods.

Samaritan’s Purse is responding to the flood-stricken region in Jesus’ Name. Our DC-8 and 757 cargo planes have airlifted tons of supplies to Porto Alegre, Brazil, in response to the catastrophic flooding and deadly landslides. These relief flights transported urgently needed items such as community water filtration systems, household water filters, blankets, hygiene kits, solar lights, and more to the region.

Our Disaster Assistance Relief Team (DART) is on the ground managing this response, working closely alongside Brazilian churches. Together, they have had a significant opportunity to share the love of God, in word and deed, with hurting people during this crisis. Please pray for these communities as they recover from the sudden floods—more rain is expected this week and there is an increased risk of death from waterborne illnesses. Pray that many would come to know the Lord Jesus Christ.
