  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provided immediate humanitarian assistance in December 2004 to the tsunami-hit areas of Indonesia, Thailand and Sri Lanka. Partnering with Islamic Relief Worldwide, the Church sent food and emergency supplies from the United States to the devastated areas.
  • The Church continues to assist the area with long-term relief projects. Homes, schools, medical facilities and mosques have been reconstructed with the assistance of local governments and companies.
  • In some areas, Church leaders, missionaries and Church members have worked to help individuals return to their livelihoods. Fishermen, farmers and weavers have been given the necessary tools that allow them to work and provide for themselves, their families and their communities.
