Samaritan Purse Sets Up Emergency Field Hospital Following Earthquake in Turkey

As the death toll in Turkey and Syria earthquakes rises above 30,000, Samaritan Purse team sets up a field hospital in the region.

The evangelical Christian humanitarian aid organization, Samaritan Purse, offers to establish a field hospital in Turkey following the disaster that had the region lose most of its healthcare facilities. The unavailability of adequate healthcare services has compounded the effect of the unfortunate disaster on the victims and the community at large. 

In a statement by the president of the humanitarian aid group, Franklin Graham, he said; “This massive earthquake has devastated Turkey. Thousands of people were killed and hundreds of thousands have been left homeless and are searching for their loved ones. It is cold there and survivors are in shock—they need our help,”.  “We are responding to meet needs in Jesus’ Name. Please pray for all those who are suffering.”

The humanitarian aid organization had deployed an emergency field hospital consisting of volunteer doctors and nurses to render help to those victims of the earthquake. The field hospital is equipped with about 52 beds, a pharmacy, and 2 operational theaters. The executive director of Samaritan’s Purse in the UK told Premier that as soon as the hospital is running, it will conduct up to 25 operations in a day and that a lot of specialists will be required. 

The president of the team had also tweeted on his official Twitter page about the progress of the Emergency Field Hospital. He said; “our Emergency Field Hospital is set up & ready—as of this morning, it was 80% complete. All the tents are up & the hospital has fuel & water. By this evening, we are scheduled to have 92 staff on the ground.”

As of Sunday, the presence of the team was already noticeable on the field and in nearby areas. In a report on the official website of the group, about 75 disaster response specialists are working at the Emergency Field Hospital site to get the work done quickly, as nearly 12 tents have been erected already.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
