Women are neglected, abused, and exploited every day. Restoring strength, hope and dignity—just one woman at a time—profoundly impacts her future, her family, and her entire community. Through your generous gifts and faithful prayer support, Samaritan’s Purse is working to empower women through education, livelihood training, medical care, and more.
To mark International Women’s Day, Samaritan’s Purse Canada hosted a special online event featuring special guest speaker Cissie Graham Lynch, daughter of Franklin Graham, and Samaritan’s Purse partners like Mercy Abraham, leading our Women’s Fortress project in India. Watch the special event:

A room lined with sewing machines may not be the likely place from which to confront a global pandemic. But in south India, 46 courageous women are turning one such room into an epicenter of hope in the fight against COVID-19. Read the inspiring story of how 46 courageous women in India are keeping their families from starving and protecting thousands more from COVID-19.
Read a story from Cissie Graham Lynch, daughter of Franklin Graham about a woman in Liberia whose story encourages her even many years after they met. As the first believer in her remote village she endured severe persecution, but she persevered through prayer and eventually saw God transform the community—through a simple fish pond.
Women all over the world face the dark reality of abandonment, exploitation, and abuse. Samaritan’s Purse works to reach the most vulnerable of these with the light of the Gospel. We meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of women through programs like abuse prevention, general and maternal health, vocational training, and discipleship.
The hardships women in the developing world face often leave them without hope. Through your generous gifts, Samaritan’s Purse is working to restore the hope of women through programs aimed at increasing literacy, providing maternal health care, teaching livelihood skills, and stopping trafficking and prostitution.

she can laugh at the days to come.
Globally, women earn 24 per cent less than men and do nearly 2.5 times more unpaid and domestic work. Poverty leaves countless women and children in the developing world vulnerable to exploitation and abuse. Join us and our local Christian partners in restoring hope and dignity by providing women with the education, training, and resources they need to earn a fair wage and reach their God-given potential. Doing so will also give their children a head start on improving their lives and their communities.
Come alongside us as a monthly partner! Join us in empowering marginalized women around the world and in doing so, supporting their families and communities.
