14 photos of what Latter-day Saint Charities is doing to help Palestinians in Jordan


In Jordan, Latter-day Saint Charities — the humanitarian arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — collaborates with Medical Aid for Palestinians to provide essential care to those who cannot afford it.

Latter-day Saint Charities has donated medical equipment and supplies to Medical Aid for Palestinians, which works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees. The organization also seeks to develop local capacity and skills to ensure the long-term development of the Palestinian health care system, according to its website.

The following photos published on the Church’s Middle East Newsroom show some of the Palestinians in Jordan whose lives have been changed by generous donations from people worldwide to Latter-day Saint Charities.

Photos were taken at the Medical Aid for Palestinians clinic located in Talbieh, Jordan, in October 2021.
