Responding to Emergencies in 2017
LDS Charities responded to these and many other needs from disasters around the world. Mudslides in Sierra Leone killed over 1,000 people and left 3,000 residents homeless. LDS Charities and Development Initiative Programme partnered to provide mattresses, food, and water to those affected by this disaster. LDS Charities also offered support to victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, in the Caribbean islands and the southern United States.
