As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have a responsibility to care for all of God’s children around the world. One of the ways we make the biggest impact is by prioritizing the health and well-being of women and children. Through global food security, immunization, education, refugee response, and maternal and newborn care initiatives, our goal is to help children reach their full potential.
Church members seek out those in need and render aid to all God’s children without regard to religious affiliation, race, or nationality. The Church, its members, and its friends have combined their donations with volunteer efforts to relieve suffering and build self-reliance around the world.
To learn more about these efforts, check out the 2022 Annual Report on Caring for Those in Need.
Self-reliance is a key to success and happiness, both for individuals and for communities. To help foster self-reliance, the Church offers programs and resources. Members are encouraged to develop their own talents and abilities, as well as find strength in the Lord, and use them to serve and contribute to their communities.
Some of the best opportunities to serve one another begin with active participation in our homes and neighborhoods. People of all backgrounds come together to solve local problems and help individuals in their communities feel loved.
