Samaritan’s Purse is operating multiple medical facilities in various parts of Ukraine and providing food and non-food relief items through church partners in both Ukraine and Moldova.
- Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham traveled to Ukraine to see our teams at work in March and also recorded a special Easter message from Lviv in April.
- Staff members at our Emergency Field Hospital, emergency outpatient clinics, medical stabilization points, and our mobile unit have treated thousands of patients so far.
- More than 5 million Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries. Millions more are internally displaced due to the conflict.
“God calls us to go into crisis areas to help those who are most vulnerable,” said Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham. “As the conflict escalates in Ukraine, our international disaster response teams with doctors, nurses, and other specialists are equipped and ready to help people in Jesus’ Name. We want them to know that God loves them and has not forgotten them.”
Samaritan’s Purse is providing medical relief to displaced Ukrainians, serving them at multiple medical facilities in various parts of the country.
Our Emergency Field Hospital on the outskirts of Lviv, in western Ukraine continues to provide care. The hospital opened on March 14.
We are also operating a 24-hour medical clinic at a train station in Lviv. To meet growing needs, we opened an additional clinic in one of the city’s major bus stations.
Our fourth and fifth medical interventions—emergency outpatient clinics— are meeting dire needs in southwestern and central Ukraine. A mobile medical unit is now operation in Lviv as well.

Meeting Urgent Needs, Working Alongside Church Partners
The world is shocked and horrified by the images of death and destruction coming out of Ukraine, a catastrophe we have not witnessed in Europe since the Second World War.
“Ukrainian families are hurting and in desperate need of prayer and support as millions flee for their lives,” said Franklin Graham. “We want to meet the needs of these families in their darkest moments while pointing them to the light and hope of Jesus Christ.”
Samaritan’s Purse has a partner network of more than 3,000 churches in Ukraine and neighboring Moldova. As conflict erupted, we were in the process of distributing 600,000 Operation Christmas Child gift-filled shoeboxes in Ukraine.
“Please join me in praying for the people of Ukraine and for this conflict to end quickly,” Franklin Graham
