“On behalf of the government and His Excellency, the President of Sierra Leone, we say kudos to your Church and its members,”  Freetown city official Shiaka Lamin Dumbuya said.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Sierra Leone has come to the aid of some 500 people impacted by a recent mudslide that has killed 1,000 people and left thousands more homeless. With the help of LDS Charities (the Church’s humanitarian arm), local Mormons and community leaders have delivered mattresses, food, water and other life-sustaining supplies to 105 families. Almost all of these families are not Mormon.
