Evangelical Christian organization providing physical and spiritual aid to hurting people around the world since 1970
Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian non-profit non-political humanitarian organization that works worldwide to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people suffering from war, poverty, disaster, disease, famine, and persecution. The organization’s president is Franklin Graham, son of Christian evangelist Billy Graham.
The name of the organization is based on the biblical story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37), where Jesus uses an unlikely example to teach people how to love their neighbors. In the same way that the Samaritan went out of his way to care for a wounded and neglected stranger, Samaritan’s Purse offers help and hope to people in desperate and difficult circumstances.
