LDS Church Expresses Concern for those Fleeing Violence, War and Religious Persecution

News Release from Mormon Newsroom
In response to recent media inquiries, the following statement has been released:

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is concerned about the temporal and spiritual welfare of all of God’s children across the earth, with special concern for those who are fleeing physical violence, war and religious persecution. The Church urges all people and governments to cooperate fully in seeking the best solutions to meet human needs and relieve suffering.

You can learn more about the Church’s official stance on refugees by reading the page “Refugee Outreach” at MormonNewsroom.org. It includes the statement:

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been encouraged to provide assistance to refugees around the world. In October 2015, the First Presidency, the highest governing body of the Church, issued a letter to all Church members encouraging them to provide assistance. In March 2016, the First Presidency issued a letter to Church members encouraging women of all ages to assist refugees in their own communities.
