The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a mission to care for all of God’s children around the world. That includes their spiritual health and their physical well-being.
A new website now contains those efforts in one place: Caring.ChurchofJesusChrist.org. The name reflects the goal to care for all of God’s children and a larger effort to shine a light on the efforts of the global Church and Church members working to care for those in need. The 2022 annual Caring for Those in Need report can also be found on the site.
Humanitarian efforts by the Church and its members are also highlighted on Facebook and Instagram. In January, the name of those social media accounts changed from @latterdaysaintcharities to @caring.churchofjesuschrist.
Social media posts announcing the name change said, “Members around the world work to give their time, talents, and resources to bless those in need. And through those efforts, we become better disciples of Jesus Christ.”
The posts then quoted from President Russell M. Nelson’s talk in April 2021 general conference: “The two great commandments can guide us: first, to love God and, second, to love our neighbor. We show our love by serving” (“What We Are Learning and Will Never Forget”).
