haron Eubank, Director of LDS Charities, the humanitarian service arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), participated in a roundtable discussion on religious persecution held in London, England hosted by HRH Prince Charles, AMAR International Charitable Foundation Patron, and AMAR founder Baroness Emma Nicholson (December 13).
The event at Lancaster House, commemorating AMAR’s twenty-fifth anniversary, was attended by the Foundation’s beneficiaries and supporters – along with faith leaders and others including Lord Ahmad, Minister of State at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office who serves as the British Prime Minister’s Special Representative on Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict.
Sharon Eubank said, “The meeting underlined the urgent need to address the severe conditions of the Yazidi people of Iraq who have been victims of persecution, sexual violence, and other violations. We also seek to support them in the general recognition and free practice of their peaceful faith.
“Mormons themselves once faced religious violence and we want to stand shoulder to shoulder with all people of goodwill in seeking to eradicate it. We were grateful to have the opportunity, along with Baroness Nicholson, in presenting to Prince Charles the 2017 Windsor Conference recommendations on these issues.”
