What We do
Love. Hope. Logistics.
In 1999 we shipped our first 40’ container to Honduras. We repeated our first shipment in 2000 when we loaded another 40’ container of donated goods and shipped it to Honduras. In 2001 we tripled our output when, with the help of generous donors, we shipped a 20’ container to the Ukraine, and 40’ containers to El Salvador and Belize.
In 2012, Global Samaritan shipped one 40’ container per month and over 190 tons of goods worth $800,000 (U.S.). Year around, students, health professionals, missionaries and other workers carry suitcases full of supplies as they travel to areas in need. Smaller amounts of palletized goods are also shipped by Global Samaritan.
We partner with churches, corporations, non-profits, missionaries, nondenominational organizations, and individuals who know the people they serve by name.
At Global Samaritan we collect surplus goods of all kinds: medical and school supplies, tools and equipment, household goods, furniture and more. We provide the logistics for storage, staging and shipment of the goods we collect and goods collected by other partners.
In many countries, lack of pure water is the primary reason people are unable to rise out of poverty. Women and children often spend six hours or more each day fetching water for their families and communities. But there is help and hope! Water purification kits from Global Samaritan can bring water to any thirsty community.
Our 55,000 square foot warehouse in Abilene, Texas is filled by families, individuals, businesses, corporations, schools and churches who donate out of their surplus. From these generous donors we receive a variety of both new and used goods that we then find a need for in other areas of the world.
When disaster strikes people close to home or halfway around the globe, one individual can make a big difference. Global Samaritan is here to help.
Global Samaritan Resources is a Christian humanitarian aid organization. We help people fulfill one of the greatest callings of life: helping other people. We help people in our hometown of Abilene more than anywhere else in the world. We can help you help!
