Samaritan’s Purse sends disaster relief to Alabama after deadly tornado strikes

Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief organization, has deployed staff, volunteers and a tractor-trailer stocked with tools and supplies to tornado-ravaged Alabama. The powerful storm spawned multiple twisters, killing at least 23 people and leveling entire neighborhoods. It is one of the deadliest storms to strike Alabama in years.

The North Carolina-based relief organization is calling on volunteers from across the country to help residents devastated by these tornadoes. Teams of volunteers will clear debris, remove downed trees, tarp roofs and search for personal belongings.

“Alabama families are hurting and in need this morning after these deadly and destructive tornadoes,” said Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse. “We are on the ground providing all the help we can while reminding families that there is still hope. Please pray for families impacted and for first responders who continue to search for people who are still missing.”

Chaplains from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s Rapid Response Team will work alongside Samaritan’s Purse to provide emotional and spiritual encouragement to storm victims.
