Church Responding to Multiple Emergencies
In addition to the relief efforts in Myanmar, the Church is also currently responding to emergency situations in several other locations in the world. To make a donation to support the general Emergency Response Fund, visit the LDS Philanthropies Web site.


Presiding Bishop David H. Burton has said:
"To help relieve suffering is to cultivate a Christlike character. We are charged, as were those who listened at the feet of the Savior 2,000 years ago, to 'go, and do thou likewise.' The Prophet Joseph Smith taught that it is our responsibility 'to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to provide for the widow, to dry up the tear of the orphan, to comfort the afflicted, whether in this church or in any other, or in no church at all, wherever he finds them' (Times and Seasons, 15 Mar. 1842, 732).
"May we be generous with our time and liberal in our contributions for the care of those who suffer. May we commit to the principles of Good Samaritanism and be ever mindful of the need to 'go, and do thou likewise.'"
- Bishop David H. Burton
