“Following Christ is not a casual or occasional practice but a continuous commitment and way of life that applies at all times and in all places.”
(Dallin H. Oaks, “Followers of Christ,” Apr. 2013 general conference).
As members of the Church of Jesus Christ, we feel it is our duty to follow the Savior’s example and help those in need, whoever they are. One way we help others is through our emergency response efforts.
The Church provides relief in situations of civil unrest, famine, and natural disasters by providing short-term resources such as food, water, shelter, clothing, medical supplies, and hygiene kits.
This response is accomplished under the direction of local leadership, often in conjunction with local and international relief organizations. Members help by distributing supplies and participating in cleanup.
