Samaritan’s Purse delivers backpacks to children in Ukraine


NORTH WILKESBORO, NC – Samaritan’s Purse is sending thousands of children’s backpacks to Ukraine, each filled with a teddy bear, hat, sketchbook, balloon and gospel materials suitable for children, to let them know that God loves them and has not forgotten them.

Karl PhelpsSamaritan’s Purse:

Samaritan’s Purse prepares backpacks for children in Ukraine. We’re going to send these backpacks on our DC-8 plane; and from there they are transported to distribution points throughout Ukraine.

Bethany JobeSamaritan’s Purse:

These backpacks are full of awesome items, like a notebook, and there are crayons, and there’s a hat to keep them warm while traveling, and also a fun smiley ball, and a little toy also. There are also objects that teach them the love of God.

My prayer for these children is that they know Jesus and know that he never leaves them, never forsakes them, loves them so much and is with them every step of the way as they flee from such a terrible situation. and try to find a new normal where they go.
