The LDS Church's new website iwasastranger.lds.org is available in 10 languages to support the invitation by church leaders to women and girls in Relief Society, Young Women and Primary reach out to aid refugees and others in their communities.

The LDS Church has published the website for its "I Was a Stranger" refugee relief effort in 10 languages, from Chinese, Korean and Japanese to Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.

The website — iwasastranger.lds.org — was launched Monday and is also available in French, German, Russian and English, according to the LDS Media Talk blog.

The website provides resources to Mormon women who accept the invitation of church leaders to join a new relief effort to help refugees living in their own communities.

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sent a letter Monday to stake councils and ward councils to inform them about the relief effort. The letter included a set of guidelines for local leaders.

The general presidents of the Relief Society, Young Women and Primary organizations also sent a letter to congregations around the world and instructed that the letter be distributed in the local meetings of those organizations.
