Church Reports on Global COVID-19 Relief Efforts, Largest in Church History

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its members have worked tirelessly to provided humanitarian aid in a variety of ways. The actions taken by the Church and Latter-day Saint Charities represent the largest humanitarian aid response in the history of the Church.

According to a new video released by the Church reporting on the various partnerships and organizations to help combat COVID-19, more than 630 projects have been taken on in over 130 countries. This includes food and monetary donations, the sewing of millions of masks for healthcare workers and communities, and the individual efforts by members who have volunteered.

Bishop Gérald Caussé is featured in the new video, which can be viewed below. He reports that 15 additional truckloads of food and supplies have been sent out each week to various charitable organizations in the United States and Canada. Each truckload can feed approximately 1,400 people. That would be over 100,000 people per month. He also reported on the Relief Society’s outstanding success in sewing over 5 million masks.

“Reaching out to those in need, helping others that are needy or affected is really at the center of the gospel. It is at the core of our beliefs,” Bishop Caussé said. “We try to emulate the example of Jesus Christ as disciples.”
