Susan Pineda – Samaritan’s Purse:
We are here with Samaritan’s Purse in Armenia responding to the crisis of people that have been displaced due to the war. Lots of people, over 100,000 people have flocked into different regions in Armenia currently. These families have lost everything and we are here meeting those needs. Today we have been distributing hygiene kits, cleaning kits, bedding.
The winter is about to start here in Armenia and so people need something to stay warm. We are providing thick blankets, school supplies for children, everything that has to do with helping families get back on their feet.
We realize that people are hurting, and we are here to show the love of Christ, to meet a need in a time of crisis, and be able to just be the hands and feet of Christ.
