Samaritan’s Purse Canada is aiding families who lost their homes and belongings in catastrophic wildfires spreading across the interior of British Columbia.
Outside resources are often crucial in enabling affected communities to recover and rebuild. Samaritan’s Purse responds immediately providing assistance through highly trained volunteer leadership partnering with local churches, emergency management, and regional authorities.
Samaritan’s Purse mobilizes its Disaster Relief Unit (DRU), a custom-built tractor-trailer, and pairs volunteers with trained leaders who equip and send them into the community to assist families with emergency clean-up. Our focus is on restoring homes and properties at no cost to allow families to safely return home following the disaster.
Join the Samaritan’s Purse team as we help families recover after devastating disasters across Canada, such as floods, wildfires and more. Volunteers with a heart to serve are at the core of our Canadian Disaster Relief ministry.
Once on location, volunteer work teams help affected families reclaim their homes, dry-in roofs, clear properties, remove debris, sanitize houses, and more. Through our compassionate volunteers, families not only receive hands-on help, but also valuable human interaction during their time of need giving them hope for the future.
