As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to relentlessly sweep through communities and countries across the globe, the heroes at Samaritan’s Purse are pouring faith into the front lines. 

Early in the outbreak, Italy experienced a rapid increase of infection, shutting down vital infrastructure, commerce and travel while killing an alarming number of victims. As a result, Italy’s people have suffered immensely, with the entire country on lockdown and the highest fatality and infection rates by population of any country. 

In spite of the dangers to staff and volunteers, Samaritan’s Purse was quick to respond. They delivered desperately needed medical aid to Italy’s most heavily affected regions. Their efforts provided doctors, nurses, equipment and supplies to battle the COVID-19 virus and save lives. 


Our fellow human beings are in need all over the planet every day. For 50 years, Samaritan’s Purse has come to the aid of millions who are suffering. They are bringing faith and heroism to the battlefield on a worldwide level by tackling human challenges. To contribute to their battle with COVID-19 in Italy or to learn more, click the link below.
