With more than 200 wildfires raging in British Columbia’s hot, tinder-dry interior, the provincial government has declared a state of emergency and asked Samaritan’s Purse to respond.
Thousands of residents have fled and hundreds of homes have already been lost, including nearly every house in the town of Lytton.
“It’s heartbreaking to see how many people have lost their homes and livelihoods—and how many more are fearing the same thing as fires threaten their communities,” said Tammy Suitor, Samaritan’s Purse’s Canadian disaster relief manager. “Our prayer is that we will bring comfort to the hurting and share hope in Jesus’ Name.”
