Ministries Making a Difference
Samaritan’s Purse, Food for the Hungry, Bibles For The World, and Nazarene Youth International
Samaritan’s Purse has so far approved 35 Mississippi families for its mobile home replacement program. Local installers will be setting up the mobile homes in the coming weeks for residents in Amory, Rolling Fork, and Silver City, Mississippi who lost everything in the deadly March 24 tornado and who did not have insurance or were under-insured and in desperate need of help. Samaritan’s Purse has two stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 60.
Bibles For The World’s Christian hospital in Manipur, India, has been providing medical care to victims of ethnic violence that broke out earlier this month.

Three of the nonprofit’s church partners in the area are now refugee camps, where teams are providing medicine, food and other essentials. Bibles For The World has one star and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 92.
