Samaritan’s Purse (BGEA): Three schoolchildren from Tanzania who were injured in a horrific bus crash that killed 29 of their classmates, two teachers and a bus driver arrived Monday afternoon in Sioux City, Iowa, where a heartland Christian ministry volunteered to finance their treatment and recovery.

 

Cee Harmon’s insight:

Franklin Graham’s humanitarian Christian group Samaritan’s Purse responded after STEMM, the Siouxland Tanzania Educational Medical Ministries, promised to help the three children, who were suffering from a wide range of broken bones and other injuries.
