Brazil Floods

Samaritan’s Purse has deployed a Disaster Assistance Response Team to Porto Alegre, Brazil, in response to critical needs in the flood-devastated area. At least 100 people were killed and over 160,000 more were displaced in the wake of flash floods and landslides following days of heavy rains in the region.

Crews are readying our 757 cargo plane to transport personal water filtration systems, hygiene kits, blankets, solar lights, and other relief items as soon as all flight permissions are finalised. We’re also supplying ten community water filtration systems, each capable of supplying clean drinking water for up to 10,000 people per day
