“Sister Bingham at United Nations,” Ensign, November 2017
Speaking during a faith-based panel discussion about refugee integration at the United Nations in New York City on April 13, 2017, Relief Society General President Jean B. Bingham expressed hope that faith-based organizations “will all work together through small and simple means to accomplish extraordinary things.”
During the annual “Focus on Faith” briefing, Sister Bingham discussed the Church’s humanitarian efforts with refugees and expressed sincere appreciation to all who are engaged in the “challenging but deeply rewarding work” of relieving suffering throughout the world.
Sister Bingham had recently returned from a United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) field visit to Uganda with Sister Sharon Eubank, First Counselor in the Relief Society General Presidency and director of LDS Charities. Sister Eubank also attended the U.N. meeting in New York City.
