Franklin Graham has devoted his life to meeting the needs of people around the world. The elder son of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, he has served as president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse since 1979 and as president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association since 2001.
Under his leadership, Samaritan’s Purse has met the needs of poor, sick, and suffering people in more than 100 countries. Franklin Graham, like his father, is an outspoken supporter of the Jewish State. In Israel, they focus on providing physical relief to families who have fled violence and have donated ambulances to Magen David Adom.
