The Non – Governmental Organisation which its corporation was solely inspired by the benevolence of the “good Samaritan” in the scriptures is commemorating its 50th anniversary.
The responsibility of providing aid to countries, cities, villages, company’s, families et al who are overtaken by unfortunate disasters like flood, fire outbreak, effect of wars and all bad events, was the reason for the corporation of the organisation. In similitude with the scriptures, as many who overlooked the poor soul who was attacked by bad people and robbed, the good Samaritan offered unequivocal help and expedited his relief.
The “Samaritan purse” was founded by Bob Pierce and co-founded by Dr. Richard Furman and since then provided uninterrupted aids to many who are overtaken by unfortunate events.
The organisation has been a helping hand to Africa, Europe and the globe at large.
