In addition to our two respiratory care units, Samaritan’s Purse has also responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by supplying personal protective equipment.
On April 4, we sent hospital-grade disinfectant, spray bottles, and gloves to First Nations communities in northern Manitoba and Ontario. As COVID-19 appears even in remote parts of our country, these precious supplies from our Canadian Response Center will be crucial in protecting healthcare workers there. And we are rapidly working to prepare more kits for other communities. Thank you so much for your support and partnering with us in this ministry.
“And when he [the Samaritan] saw him [the injured man], he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds…and took care of him” (Luke 10:33-34)
April 7 is World Health Day, and it is time for all of us to honor and pray for our courageous healthcare workers. Would you join in praying for them? Pray for God’s protection, peace, and strength as they care for us in our times of greatest need.
Across Canada, many communities struggle with major challenges. They may be facing anything from natural disasters to drug addictions. They may have deep spiritual needs and local Christians want to reach out, but need our support. Your gifts will enable Samaritan’s Purse to respond promptly to the diverse and pressing needs that exist across our country.
