Hurricane Fiona, the first major hurricane of the 2022 hurricane season, recently impacted Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, where Buckner has significant in-country work.
As of Sept. 20, the impact of the hurricane was significant in Puerto Rico due to the amount of rain they received. In the Dominican Republic, the hurricane affected areas northeast of the island.
Buckner locations in Dominican Republic received rain as well, but no major damage has been reported. The Buckner locations are safe and back to normal operations.
In the Dominican Republic, we provide services through the Buckner Family Hope Center™. The Family Hope Center is a child-centered, family-focused place where families can go to find hope, support and empowerment in their community to reach their fullest God-given potential. The key to the program’s success is found in combining effective programs and passionate people to help families experiencing poverty, family issues and lack of services.
We're excited to share with you all the ways you can shine hope to vulnerable children and families around the world. We invite you to stay connected with us while also growing in your own faith.
