With Ukraine for the Long Haul

Samaritan’s Purse continues to respond to the crisis in Ukraine by providing practical help in Jesus’ Name.

Responding to the Crisis in Ukraine

Samaritan’s Purse continues to serve the war-stricken nation of Ukraine. We have provided much-needed relief since the beginning of the conflict, but in mid-August, we transitioned our response from a temporary Disaster Assistance Response Team to a long-term country office. Our staff continues to provide food, water, medical care, and shelter to the devastated—but resilient—citizens of Ukraine.

“Now some of the greater needs that we see are actually inside the Red Zone—inside of the areas where the conflict continues to rage,” said Country Director Ryan Lane. Undeterred, Samaritan’s Purse is offering tangible hope in Jesus’ Name.

Watch the video posted above to get glimpses of our work and see faces of people who desperately need our prayers.

To date, Samaritan’s Purse has served over 8 million people in our Ukraine response. This has included seeing over 20,000 medical patients and providing more than 23 million liters of clean water as well as over 86 million pounds of food. Much of this relief has been supplied through more than 30 flights of our DC-8 aircraft.

Samaritan’s Purse has also deployed our Emergency Field Hospital to a recently liberated area in Ukraine.

Please pray for an end to the conflict and for the nation of Ukraine to rebuild.

Responding to the Crisis in Ukraine Samaritan's Purse is providing food, water, and non-food items, such as wood stoves, solar lights, and construction materials, to suffering families in Ukraine. In partnership with local churches and ministry partners, we are bringing this urgently needed relief to those in areas deeply affected by the conflict. We are also airlifting medical supplies into the country and providing medical training as fighting rages on. Since the start of the war, we have operated two field hospitals and other medical clinics.
