Mormon humanitarian efforts: $4 million in 2007 in 85 countries

The LDS Church has offered over $4 million in humanitarian aid in 85 countries around the world.  This article from a California newspaper covers this here.

"In Ethiopia, the Church helped communities access clean drinking water. The Church drilled wells and constructed storage tanks. Communities organized a water committee and dug the trenches needed to pipe the water from the storage tanks to each village. In some cases this was a distance of over 5 kilometers," said Bishop Burton.
