“The great enemy of charity is pride.”
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, “In Praise of Those Who Save,”

“There are more than 60 million refugees, including forcibly displaced people, worldwide. Half of those are children. …
“As sisters we make up more than half of the Lord’s storehouse to help Heavenly Father’s children. His storehouse is not composed just of goods but also of time, talents, skills, and our divine nature. …
“With these truths in mind, we have organized a relief effort called ‘I Was a Stranger’ [see
IWasAStranger.lds.org]. It is our hope that you will prayerfully determine what you can do—according to your own time and circumstance—to serve the refugees living in your neighborhoods and communities.”
Linda K. Burton, Relief Society general president, “I Was a Stranger,”
Ensign, May 2016, 13, 14.
