"Words Alone Are Not Enough": Peruvian First Lady, President Thank LDS Church for Flood Relief Efforts


The Peruvian First Lady, Nancy Lange Kuczynski, with the Peruvian President, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, expressed their sincere gratitude for relief efforts organized by the Church after historic flooding in Peru. 

Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski recently reached out to President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency, to offer thanks for the Church’s relief assistance in the aftermath of historic flooding in Peru.

The two men spoke on May 9th via videoconference—connecting President Kuczynski at the Government Palace in Lima with President Eyring at Church headquarters in Salt Lake City.

“The purpose of this call is to thank The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for the help it provided in a time of emergency that our country recently experienced—along with the sacrifice of the Church members and volunteers who [served] where they were needed,” said the Peruvian president during their discussion.

Also participating was Peru’s first lady, Ms. Nancy Lange Kuczynski—the self-proclaimed “First Nation Volunteer,” according to Peru’s Mormon Newsroom.

“Words alone are not enough to thank the Church for all it has done during this emergency,” she told President Eyring.
