Transparent Button Ukraine

Samaria acts as a humanitarian aid provider to Ukraine

After the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, Samaria has been committed to supporting Ukrainian refugees and has been delivering significant material aid to Ukraine on a monthly basis since spring 2022.

The aid convoys have transported various types of donated transportation equipment, including cars, trucks, vans, ATVs, water trucks, and the Mobile Hospital Clinic bus.

Each aid shipment has included hospital supplies, maternity packages, and dry food items. Stoves, electric generators, warm clothing and shoes, as well as blankets, have helped thousands of people during cold times.

We have also transported people to safety from border areas and facilitated visits for Ukrainian refugees living in Porvoo to their homeland.

The combined value of the donated goods and vehicles exceeds one million euros. The items have been donated by Finnish organizations, churches, hospitals, family businesses, and private individuals. All drivers are professionals, but they participate on a voluntary basis.

Transparent Button Myanmar

The emergency in Myanmar continues

In the unrest that began in February 2021, many people have died. Karen tribe villages have been bombed, and thousands of people are hiding in the jungle area. Thousands of people from Karen residential areas are trying to seek refuge in Thailand’s refugee camps. We have collected and sent aid to purchase food for those fleeing the war and to alleviate conditions in the refugee camps.

Transparent Button Burundi

Burundi has fallen to the bottom of the world poverty rankings. We must react more visibly to the situation prevailing in Burundi.

We have been present in the country since 2013 as a partner of the Finland Swedish Pentecostal Mission and have also delivered aid to our local partner Cepbu by sea container. Our main task has been to train church workers to assist those suffering from substance abuse and to combat human trafficking creeping into the midst of poverty. Throughout world history, slavery and human trafficking have exploited extreme poverty.

We still want to believe and do what we can. You can contribute to helping the poor people of Burundi with our fundraising reference number.
