Supporting Samaritan's Purse Canada
One of our partners, Samaritan’s Purse is running a 68-bed respiratory care unit in Cremona, Italy, for COVID-19 patients. The mobile medical facility was airlifted to Italy on March 17 and opened March 20 to patients. Within a few days it was full.
“We’re treating the patients the same way as over at the hospital, but we’re adding prayer and we’re adding Jesus and we’re praying for our patients,” says physician’s assistant Stephanie Morales, “They’re so wanting prayer.”
The Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), composed of a roster of on-call professionals, has come together to spread the hope of Jesus Christ with critically ill patients in Italy.
Yesterday, President Mark Maxwell, received a phone call from Samaritan’s Purse requesting assistance to get the word out to our medical alumni.
