SALT LAKE CITY - Islamic Relief Worldwide and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are working together to provide urgently needed medical supplies to victims of the devastating earthquake that struck Indonesia on Saturday.
This rapid-response shipment includes critically needed supplies to care for the thousands injured in Saturday's disaster: first-aid supplies, materials for making casts to set broken arms and legs, walkers, canes, crutches, warm-weather clothing for hospital patients and hygiene kits.
Generous donations to the Church's humanitarian fund combined with volunteer labor from members and friends of the Church make possible the ongoing warehousing of disaster relief supplies. Having needed materials readily at-hand enables the Church to respond quickly to relieve suffering among the most needy during crisis situations.
Those interested in donating to the emergency response relief effort of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can go to www.ldsphilanthropies.com.
