The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints announced two donations, totaling $75,000, to child abuse prevention organizations in Salt Lake City and abroad on Wednesday.

The church’s female leaders traveled to the Children’s Justice Center in Salt Lake City to deliver a $50,000 donation to help child abuse victims and their families. The money will help Children’s Justice Centers statewide.

“[The Church recognizes that abuse is] a societal problem, that it also affects our members,” Jean Bingham, the church’s Relief Society general president, said in a press release. “And so, we want to support these wonderful organizations who are dealing with this on a day-to-day basis.”
