Responding to Coronavirus

Providing Emergency Medical Care

Samaritan’s Purse is operating a 68-bed Emergency Field Hospital in Cremona, Italy, to care for patients sickened with COVID-19.

Cremona is one of the hardest-hit communities in Italy, where the need for intensive care beds quickly overwhelmed the healthcare system capacity. Our team of medical professionals and disaster relief specialists are serving in Jesus’ Name to bring comfort and the hope of Christ to hurting people.

Samaritan’s Purse stands ready to respond to a medical crisis anywhere in the world. We have deployed our Emergency Feld Hospital in the aftermath of disasters in Ecuador, Mozambique, and the Bahamas. During the battle to liberate Mosul from ISIS terror, we set up our mobile medical facility on the Plains of Nineveh in Iraq. We have operated Ebola Treatment Centers in both Liberia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Our medical teams also mounted significant deployments in Bangladesh to care for people with diphtheria and in Haiti during a cholera epidemic following Hurricane Matthew.
