TURKEY — Samaritan’s Purse is rushing a mobile hospital and relief supplies along with medical teams and disaster specialists to the earthquake-devastated region in Turkey.
Ken Isaacs – Vice President and Programs and Government Relations, Samaritan’s Purse:
Samaritan’s Purse is responding to the horrible earthquakes that just happened in Turkey and Syria killing thousands of people. What we are focused on is sending a tier free hospital, that means it has two operating rooms and about 52 beds. We call it an emergency field hospital. We have it packed and prepared in boxes in our warehouse and we’re flying it over. Please keep the people of Turkey in your prayers and please pray for us as we do all that we can to help in Jesus’ name in this area that has been devastated by these earthquakes.
