Humanitarian conference draws women from across Northern NM

By Special to the Monitor

On Sept. 25, the Santa Fe Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Relief Society, an organization in the church for women ages 18 up, held their annual Humanitarian Conference.
The conference was in Santa Fe and brought over 130 women from congregations throughout Northern New Mexico, who participated in a variety of humanitarian projects.
One project involved assembling over 100 newborn kits that were donated to Española Hospital and Los Alamos Medical Center.  Another project included sewing brightly colored pillowcases that had been sewn by the women over the last few months. These colorful pillowcases were packaged and donated to the Foster Children’s Program of the State of New Mexico.  
The Foster Children’s Program provides children who are placed in foster care with their own pillowcase, so they can take with them to their foster home.  More than two large pick-up loads of clothing, shoes and toys were gathered by the women of the Santa Fe Stake and brought to the conference, then sorted and boxed, ready to send to an orphanage in Juárez Mexico that cares for over 120 children, ages newborn to 12 years.
When the projects were completed, those in attendance enjoyed a potluck dinner.
