Just over a month ago, we asked you and 2,900 other people like you in the International Samaritan community across the world to give money during a time of economic uncertainty.   The dual threat of COVID-19 and of starvation hovered over 621 families of our scholarship students who were being asked to shelter in place.  We needed to raise $62,100 to cover their food, water and sanitation supplies costs for a month—a huge stretch goal for sure.

And, wow, did you come through!

More than 240 people have given $73,325 so far to completely cover these families through all of April and well into the month of May.  Your love means so much.  It has given peace and sustenance to people in perilous places.  Nobody wants to work in the dump right now, and nobody wants to let them for fear of what germs they may catch and spread.  You are helping them through this.

Thank you for reminding us all that we will get through this together.  I hope you enjoy this video of the impact you made possible.
