Manassas, VA – Samaritan's Purse will receive the NRB Best Television Teaching Program Award for the Children's Heart series during the February 26th Television Reception at the NRB Convention & Exposition.

“Samaritan’s Purse demonstrates once again that they excel at using media to tell a compelling story,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.  “Everyone can relate to the hopes and fears that these families experience in the quest to have their children made whole.”

Children’s Heart is a family-friendly, seven-episode television series that follows the stories of three Mongolian children with life-threatening heart defects, and a number of unique families and individuals who believe in making sacrifices to help others. 

Samaritan's Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan's Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God's love through His Son, Jesus Christ.

The NRB Best Television Special Programming Award is presented to a special that demonstrates a unique vision and perspective of an important current issue; displays the highest standards of quality, creativity and innovative content; engages the culture as an effective witness from a Christian perspective; and shows a compelling use of the medium from artistic and technical standpoints.
