As of 2004, this assistance totals approximately “ three quarters of a billion dollars in material and cash assistance ” regardless of the cultural, governmental, or religious affiliation of those in need.  
     
  Move along, you are not
welcome here.
 
  . . . we have been able to extend [ Humanitatian Aid ] to the poor and the unfortunate. This very
day hungry children are eating food . . . because of the aid which [ Church members ] have sent. In
a world where there is so much of hunger and suffering, where death walks hand in hand with little
children, we must continue and enlarge our efforts, not permitting politics or other factors to
hold back the hand of mercy. ( Gordon B. Hinckley, “ Look to the Future, ” Ensign, Nov. 1997, p. 67 )
 
  One amazing example of this is the aid that has been given to African nations. Over the last five years, “ 77.7 million dollars worth of aid has been donated, with 3 million of that to Nigeria alone.”  
     
  77 million ?
If this keeps up,
we ‛ll have to move
away from here
for good.
