With each issue of Samaritan World, you will learn more about the challenges of the people living in the garbage dump communities, read personal stories of struggle and success, get to know the volunteers that carry out our mission, and how International Samaritan is working to spread the word about the sever poverty in these communities.

Service Trips

You don’t need to speak the language of the people we serve, nor do you need to be Christian. Our service-learning immersion experiences are conducted in the spirit of the Good Samaritan, but represent the universal humanitarian characteristic of helping one’s neighbor. High school and college students, health professionals, people of all ages and skill levels are welcome to participate.

2014 Schedule

Since 1995, International Samaritan has been leading service-learning immersion experiences that touch the lives of both the people we serve, and our volunteers. Build schools in Haiti, serve on a medical brigade in Honduras, teach in Egypt. Our short term service learning trips are a chance to make a lasting difference. Answer the call. It will change your life.
