A new $10 million donation from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to UNICEF aims to help the humanitarian organization serve vulnerable women and children in four countries.
The money will strengthen health systems in the Central African Republic, Haiti, Mali and Mozambique, reported ChurchofJesusChrist.org. These areas have high rates of maternal and infant deaths. Improved health infrastructure and human resources are needed to keep mothers and children healthy and safe.
“As Latter-day Saints, it is our joyful privilege to work together in weaving a tapestry of hope and healing for all of God’s children,” said Relief Society General President Camille N. Johnson. “We are grateful for our longstanding collaboration with skilled professionals at UNICEF who extend the reach of our helping hands.”
Said Presiding Bishop Gérald Caussé: “We are pleased to work together with UNICEF as we strive to create a world where every woman and child is cherished, protected and empowered. Guided by the pure love of Christ, Latter-day Saints stand united with our brothers and sisters to build a brighter future for generations to come.”
