Our Response to COVID-19

Because the state of international travel in the coming months is unknown, Samaritan Hands will not be booking any new flights for upcoming planned trips. We will no longer be doing a medical trip to Guatemala in the end of May. We have already made arrangements for a group traveling to Costa Rica in June and will watch and wait to make a decision on that trip as we get closer to departure. The VBS/Construction group to Guatemala in late June, Fairview UMC rescheduled trip in July and Zimbabwe in August are all TBD. While we will continue to support all of our ministries across the globe, it is not advisable that we continue to make plans for upcoming trips too far out.

We are continuing to support the Hogar del Nino orphanage in Guatemala, the New Horizons school in Paraguay and Ishe Anesu in Zimbabwe as well as our other ministries with the help of your donations. Donations can easily be given online at SamaritanHands.org/donate .
