Samaritan’s Purse is an international relief and development organisation that works through local churches to proclaim and demonstrate the love of God amongst communities in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. We are part of the global Samaritan’s Purse family that has been providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world since 1970. Samaritan’s Purse also has offices in the USA, Canada, Germany, and Australia.
Even if you don’t recognise the name, you may have come across our Operation Christmas Child initiative, which thousands of churches, schools and businesses across the UK and Ireland are already part of.
But we do more than just send shoeboxes overseas. We respond in a distinctly Christian way to issues facing people in the places where we work: issues like water and sanitation and sustainable livelihoods along with disasters and emergencies.
Operation Christmas Child/Shoe Box appeal
Since 1990, more than 113 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
