View motion graphics on initiatives that help those in need

Drs. George Bennett and Lyle Archibald, retired physicians who serve with numerous other medical professionals, trek to developing countries several times each year to provide training for local ministers of health and medical personnel. The pair volunteer their time and skills as a part of LDS Charities, the humanitarian arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Bennett and Archibald are among some 246 dedicated professional volunteers and more than 80 full-time humanitarian services missionaries performing fieldwork throughout the world. As the humanitarian program expanded over the past 30 years, more trained individuals volunteered to help implement eight signature programs under the LDS Charities umbrella.
