“I presented a check to the World Food Programme on behalf of [members of the Church]. The generous offerings of our worldwide membership make such a donation possible. Their commitment, their collective resolve to do something, and not just say something, will ultimately make a difference in the lives of God’s children,” said President Uchtdorf.
President Uchtdorf also toured two refugee camps near Athens during his European visit. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) hosted his visit to the Piraeus camp, which help about 1300 people outside of Athens. The International Rescue Committee (IRC) also invited him to the Eleonas refugee camp, which is home to more than 2400 residents.
LDS Charities, the humanitarian arm of the Church, partners with CRS and IRC to aid refugees both in Europe and throughout the world.
