About Samaritan’s Purse

After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan’s Purse—to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel.

Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian humanitarian organization that provides aid to people in physical need as a key part of Christian missionary work. The organization was founded by Bob Pierce in 1970 as he traveled throughout Asia as an evangelist and journalist with Youth For Christ.

The current president is Franklin Graham, son of Christian evangelist Billy Graham. Through over 30 years of earthquakes, hurricanes, wars, and famine, Franklin has led the ministry in following the Biblical example of the Good Samaritan all across the globe.

About Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is an outreach ministry of Samaritan’s Purse International. Operation Christmas Child was created in 1990, by Dave Cooke and his wife Jill Cooke, for children in Romania. Dave contacted Franklin Graham to ask if he’d like to assist in getting more shoe boxes packed for children in Eastern Europe.

Today, Samaritan’s Purse works in more than 100 countries around the world. They have field offices in some 20 countries across five continents. Before shoeboxes arrive in their countries, volunteer National Leadership Teams train pastors and community leaders who want to share the message of the Gospel and bless children.
