Don’t be fooled by Samaritan’s Purse
Last year, I persuaded one of my local churches to withdraw their support for Operation Christmas Child, run by the Samaritan’s Purse charity, by explaining that its agenda is destructive. We still hear of local schools and organisations that are taken in by its ostensibly charitable purpose, encouraging children to fill shoes boxes with gifts for needy children overseas, unaware that they’ll arrive with a toxic message. The BHA offers suggestions for alternative ways to involve children in charitable giving during the festive season.
