Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Response Team will be conducting a live full- scale simulation of a disaster as a part of the first intensive graduate level Humanitarian Aid Course designed and taught by Non Government Organization practitioners for practitioners. Participants in the course will be representing over 13 different countries to advance their skills in saving the lives of millions in the wake of disasters.
For this course to be successful, Samaritan’s Purse is inviting you to play a role in this very significant endeavor. You would be acting as a victim directly affected by an “Earthquake in Turkey” (ex. community leader, a pastor, child, etc.) You will be assigned a role and given details for your character.
Requirements are: 18 years of age or older, physically able to walk up to 2 miles at a campground site, and agree with Samaritan’s Purse Statement of Faith (found on www.samaritanspurse.org )
The dates for this simulation are April 24th, 25th and 27th (Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.) You would need to be available for the entire scheduled time, but not every day.
Wednesday, 24th 10:30am – 5:30pm
Thursday, 25th 6:30am – 3pm
Saturday 27th 6:00am – 3:30pm
The simulation will be outdoors at a nearby campground rain or shine . All volunteers will report to Samaritan’s Purse Warehouse at 7100 Forest Point Blvd., Charlotte, NC and be transported to the disaster location.
