Buckner President and CEO Albert Reyes shares an update on how Buckner staff are pulling together, both domestically and internationally, to serve children and families despite being distant.
“We’ve been told we will get through this together, yet most of us are living in isolation and doing our best to avoid others. But it’s true. We are getting through this together,” Reyes said. “Our Buckner staff has pulled together amazing ways to serve seniors, vulnerable children and families, often in ways we never dreamed we could do. Donors have come together to continue supporting our ministry with giving outpacing 2019. So even while we are separated we’re still pulling together.”
The toll of the virus in other countries Buckner serves though is overwhelming. For many desperate children and families Buckner is their only safety net, especially during a crisis like COVID-19.
