Humanitarian Donation Supports Education in Chuuk

Chuuk High School receives Church donation

The island of Chuuk, part of the Federated States of Micronesia, is home to Chuuk High School. Located in the capital village on the island of Weno, CHS prides itself on its top academic students who excel in a variety of areas. Eight-hundred and twenty-five students enrolled just this year.

Computers, sewing machines, gardening tools, and sports equipment are important for these students as they are used in learning self-reliance. They gain needed skills in different vocations and trades such as business, sewing, and gardening. These supplies will also help the youth to excel in academics and sports.

With the pandemic, the school is in greater need than in past years as many parents have lost jobs and the community is economically stressed. The school principal, Jason Reiong, contacted Elder William HK Davis in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Welfare and Self-reliance Department in Micronesia Guam requesting assistance to get the necessary tools and equipment to help the students be successful.

The Church is well known in the islands for assisting when there is great need. After a large order was placed, the supplies were then delivered to the Guam service center.

Sadly, the items are not able to be delivered in person, but the good news is the Guam office can send these supplies through DHL to benefit these youth with the needed supplies. Through these projects, we truly see the Church in action, lifting those in need to create self-reliance and success.
