Samaritan's Purse Battles Coronavirus

Samaritan’s Purse is on the front lines of the battle against COVID-19, operating a 68-bed emergency field hospital in New York's Central Park to treat those suffering with the disease. Dozens of Christian medical personnel are working day and night in the city, as well as at our other field hospital in Cremona, Italy, to save lives and share the hope found only in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Healing, both physical and spiritual, is happening.

Samaritan's Purse is also fighting the pandemic by donating personal protective equipment, including over 50,000 face masks to hospitals in North Carolina and more than eight tons of medical supplies to Alaska to be used in remote native villages. We are also working in other countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, and South America to prevent the spread of the virus and provide relief to those in need. But there's still more to be done.
