The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is teaming up with Muslims to get the much-needed medical supplies to earthquake victims in Indonesia.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined with Islamic Relief Worldwide, one of the leading humanitarian organizations in the Islamic world.
"Good people, when they work together, can make a tremendous difference in this world," said Mokhtar Shawky of Islamic Relief Worldwide. "Were talking about 200,000 people who lost their homes. We're talking about over 5,000 people lost their lives," Shawky said, "The numbers are climbing by the minute."
"It was great that we were able to do it so fast, and I'm sure this is going to save a lot of lives," said LDS church spokesperson Garry Flake.

Ali ibn Ahmad al-Ahwazi reported... from Ibn Abbas, that the Messenger of God said, "That which minimally satisfies the needs of your flesh is sufficient for any one of you. Finally it comes down to four cubits and a span (the size of a grave). The whole business returns to its end."
