Samaritan's Purse is mobilizing disaster response specialists and tractor-trailers packed with relief equipment to areas currently being ravaged by Hurricane Ian. The international Christian relief organization will continue to closely track the storm and work with local authorities and church partners to determine the greatest areas of need. As soon as it is safe to do so, Samaritan's Purse will move equipment into the most affected locations to serve families devastated by the hurricane.
"Hurricane Ian is going to impact the lives of millions of people," said Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan's Purse. "We are praying for everyone in its path and already mobilizing our team to respond in Jesus' Name.
"As Hurricane Ian makes its way towards the United States, please join us in praying for the peace and safety of all those in its path."
Samaritan's Purse will set up operations in hurricane-devastated areas. Teams of volunteers from across the country will be needed to help families by mudding out flooded homes, tarping damaged roofs, and clearing debris.
