Samaritan’s Purse sends two teams for Hurricane Florence disaster relief

As Hurricane Florence continues to wreak havoc, Samaritan’s Purse is sending two Disaster Relief Units and ten pieces of support equipment to assess damage in the hardest-hit areas of the Carolina coastline. Two more relief units are standing by. Stocked with tools, chainsaws and emergency supplies, the tractor-trailers provide the North Carolina-based organization with the equipment necessary to help families devastated by the storm.

“Our teams are on the way, ready to help people in their time of need,” said Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse. “In the wake of this storm, many are facing destruction and ruin. We want them to know they don’t have to despair. God loves them, and He hasn’t forgotten them.”

The international Christian relief organization is mobilizing its vast network of volunteers to help families get back on their feet. Teams will tear out damaged drywall from waterlogged homes, tarp roofs, remove debris, and clear downed trees.

Crisis-trained chaplains from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s Rapid Response Team have also deployed and will work alongside Samaritan’s Purse volunteers, providing spiritual and emotional care to storm victims.

In addition to the U.S. response, Samaritan’s Purse continues to aid Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico, where the organization has helped more than 351,000 individuals over the past year.
