The Good Samaritan Project
The need was great—and people like you made all the difference. Thank you for shining hope in southern Alberta!
When catastrophic flooding devastated southern Alberta in late June, 100,000 people were displaced by murky, contaminated flood waters.
The need was great—and people like you made all the difference.
Your prayers, financial support, and volunteer hours fueled the Good Samaritan Project. In partnership with Samaritan’s Purse and ShineFM, you joined thousands of donors and prayer warriors from across Canada, and nearly 5,000 volunteers to help almost 800 families prepare their flood-damaged homes for rebuild.
That’s a combined 39,000+ volunteer hours spent serving flood victims by cleaning mud out of their homes, tearing down ruined drywall and insulation, power-washing, and spraying disinfectant to prevent mould growth.
Thank you for shining hope in southern Alberta.
Even as the Good Samaritan Project comes to an end, we know that the work isn’t done. Although peoples’ homes have been cleared out, they’ve lost possessions, furniture, and even the drywall and insulation in their basements. For others, their houses have been condemned and they’re homeless. Many are without the resources to restore their homes.
That’s why Samaritan’s Purse is harnessing years of North American experience in disaster relief to launch the Southern Alberta Restoration Project. They’ll be renovating the homes of the flood’s most vulnerable victims.
