What is your means of support?

We operate by donations from individuals, churches and organizations.

Why is your ministry called "Good Samaritan"?

The "Good Samaritan" about whom we read in the New Testament (Luke 10:30-37) is an example of a man who did not pass by someone in need but showed mercy and kindness by helping him.

Do you represent a denomination?

"Good Samaritan" is an independent organization that professes the Christian evangelical faith.

How long have you been doing this?

The first office was established in the city of Rivne, Ukraine, in 1990 after God gave freedom for the Gospel to be preached. The main office was transferred to the USA in 1994 upon immigration of the directors.

How can I get involved?

Pray for missionaries and our ministry; donate financially for any of our mission projects; be a monthly sponsor for a missionary, pastor, orphan child; go on a mission trip with our ministry to Argentina, or India, Russia or Ukraine.

Are there opportunities to volunteer?

Help with office work at our headquarters (Federal Way, WA)

Are my donations tax deductible?

All donations to SIA of Ministries "Good Samaritan" are tax deductible. We are registered in the state of Washington as a 501C3 non-profit organization.

Why is it so hard to reach someone when I call the office?

Because we are not able to hire many full-time workers, a lot of work is being done by very few people. We try to keep our office open during regular business day hours, but sometimes the office is only open when someone is available for few hours at a time. This is especially true when some of our representatives are on a missionary trip overseas. Because we give all the finances designated for specific projects to that project, not many resources are left for administrative office work.

Do my donation go where I indicate?

Our goal is to have all the finances designated for specific projects go for that ministry. Of course, we reserve the right to give finances to where the need is the most extreme.

Who runs this organization?

The president of SIA of Ministries "Good Samaritan" is Peter Radchuk. To learn more about staff/representatives, please go to About Us > Our Team.
