As part of the Church’s relief efforts to help address specific needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Latter-day Saint Charities (LDSC), the humanitarian arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, continued to provide support to government agencies and local government units.
On 3 June 2020, LDSC turned over face masks, face shields, medical gloves, protective suits, and hygiene sets during back-to-back handover events held at the Mezzanine Hall of the Church’s administrative office in Quezon City and at the Philippine National Police Camp Crame headquarters.
Partners in Action
In a small handover ceremony at the Church’s administrative office, the Philippine Navy and TV5 Alagang Kapatid Foundation, long-time partners of LDSC, accepted the donations with glad hearts.
Carlos G. Revillo, Country Manager of LDSC, welcomed the partners, citing the Church’s eight projects with PNP, and 29 projects with TV5 for the last ten years. “Charity is the pure love of Christ. These contributions come from the love of the members of the Church from their tithes and offerings,” he said.
He added that these partnerships are built on trust. As partners demonstrate their love for their brothers and sisters, many lives will be saved. “A bottle of alcohol can save someone’s life, and we never know it can be ours,” he shared.
