Bringing Relief to Israel and Gaza

June 13, 2024 • Israel

As the conflict continues, Samaritan’s Purse is on the ground relieving suffering.

Israel Response

Samaritan’s Purse is serving the desperate needs of people on both sides of Israel’s conflict by providing food, ambulances, and other critically needed supplies in partnership with local churches and ministries.

“The need is so great,” said Franklin Graham, Samaritan’s Purse president. “We serve a big God and He’s familiar with suffering. … We want to do all we can to support you.”

Samaritan’s Purse began sending relief to the region after the Oct. 7, 2023, massacre that left hundreds of people dead and wounded in the surprise attack.

Since the beginning of our response last fall, we have transported many tons of relief–including food and supplies–aboard our DC-8 and 757 aircraft. Additionally, we have provided the country with more than a dozen ambulances and other medical supplies and equipment to support local first responders.

Please continue to pray for the people of Israel and Gaza to find hope.
