Donate to Humanitarian Services


Through generous donations from people like you, Humanitarian Services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who operates LDS Charities, provides aid to people around the world without regard to cultural or religious affiliation.

In 2016 the Church responded to 147 countries on 2,630 projects with over 1,500 partners to serve millions of people worldwide.
