In the face of the damage caused, the Church responds through its humanitarian services.

Torrential rains, hurricane winds, floods, displaced families, extensive damage to property, interruption of basic services, and even human loss of life are the result of the impact of Hurricane Fiona throughout the Caribbean region.

In response, the humanitarian services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have activated a series of actions to help authorities and community organizations cope with the situation and mitigate the damage caused by this natural phenomenon.

Help has been provided to aid about 65,000 affected families on the French island of Guadeloupe, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. The aid seeks to provide food, water, hygiene items, and other emergency supplies, as well as human assistance through Helping Hands volunteers, through which cleaning and debris removal will be carried out, as well as the distribution of supplies. The Church will continue to provide additional relief and assistance.
