Mormon Representatives Discuss Church Humanitarian Efforts at the United Nations

Representatives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints addressed the role of the Church’s global humanitarian outreach efforts at a meeting at the United Nations in New York City on 27 February 2014. The gathering was part of the Focus on Faith series of the Nongovernmental Organizations (NGO) Relations and Advocacy Section of the U.N.’s Department of Public Information (DPI). The U.N. officially recognized the Church as an NGO several years ago.

This first meeting of its kind at the U.N. dedicated exclusively to the Church was titled “Discovering Mormonism and Its Role in Humanitarian Assistance.” Those representing the Church included Sharon Eubank, director of Humanitarian Services and LDS Charities; Ahmad Corbitt, senior manager of public affairs in New York; and Elder John Colton, who, along with his wife, Barbara, is serving as a public affairs missionary interacting with the U.N.
