When believers took upon the name of Jesus Christ at baptism, they promised to “mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places” (Mosiah 18:9).
Recent events in Afghanistan have produced thousands who mourn. Afghan refugees arriving in Qatar received relief in the form of clothing, hygiene supplies and infant care items including baby formula, diapers and wipes, and small toys for the children provided by Latter-day Saints and friends in the region. The supplies filled the equivalent of 90 passenger vans, and volunteers worked tirelessly to distribute life-saving supplies to newly arriving refugees.
Over the past six years, Latter-day Saints and those who donated to Latter-day Saint charities provided $19 million to the nine U.S. agencies providing refugee resettlement.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints encourages people who pray for those who suffer to remember that tithes and generous offerings can also provide needed relief to people around the world.
