Church Assisting with Aid to Pakistan

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is coordinating with other relief agencies to provide aid to flood-ravaged Pakistan. The Church has partnered with International Relief and Development, International Medical Corps, and Saba Aslam Welfare and Trust to locally purchase and distribute immediate relief supplies. Additional supplies from the Humanitarian Center in Salt Lake City will be shipped in the coming weeks in partnership with Islamic Relief USA.

Assessments are continuing to determine further support in the coming weeks.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Pakistan,” said Bishop H. David Burton, presiding bishop of the Church, who oversees humanitarian efforts. “The generous donations of Church members and others is allowing the Church to provide aid that will relieve the suffering of many people.”
