Donations to the Humanitarian Aid Fund support Wheelchairs and other humanitarian initiatives approved by Church leaders. More Information


20 million disabled people need wheelchairs but cannot obtain one. Humanitarian Services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who operates Latter-day Saint Charities, provides wheelchairs and walking aids to those in need who cannot afford one. The recipient’s mobility, employability, and independence are greatly increased.

Last year, Humanitarian Services provided wheelchairs to 17,381 people in 16 countries. People in 134 countries and territories have been helped since 2001.

One hundred percent of every dollar donated is used to help those in need without regard to race, religion, or ethnic origin.
