With 16 million members... that equates to 68 cents per member.... Yet, Famine
and lack of a reliable food supply are threatening the lives of approximately 80
million people — more than half of them children — in South Sudan,
Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen, and in nine additional countries across Africa and

“In 2016, the First Presidency ... issued statements ... calling for an
end to world hunger.
‘We invite people everywhere to open their
hearts and minds to this growing need and make resources available to the effort

happy to see stories like this!
That is quite a large chunk for a tiny little denomination that makes up only a
