“Humanitarian Service Projects Update, 1985–1995,” Ensign, Mar. 1996, 78
The Church has been involved in helping members and others since its April 1830 organization. However, as Church membership and resources have grown, greater assistance has been available for peoples all over the world. The accompanying map shows countries receiving aid at some time between 1985 and 1995 from the Church’s Humanitarian Service Committee as distributed through international charity organizations.
