COVID-19 is impacting everyone, everywhere. It’s a scary time for all. Hospitals are overflowing with patients, and ventilators and PPE (personal protective equipment) are on short supply. Officials are deeming this the “invisible war”. Organizations everywhere are stepping up to the plate to manufacture and deliver critical items for those on the frontlines. Makeshift hospitals are also being set up in arenas and parks around the country.
Currently, Samaritan’s Purse is providing aid and relief for COVID-19 by opening emergency field hospitals in New York City’s Central Park. These makeshift hospitals are designed to care for coronavirus patients, staffed with a team of doctors, nurses and medical personnel. The organization has also set up an additional field hospital in Cremona, Italy.
Samaritan’s Purse is an international relief agency. Founded in 1970 by Bob Pierce and Franklin Graham, the organization has been delivering aid and relief to those struck by war, poverty, natural disease, and famine.
