In a recent video from the Church, Bishop Gérald Caussé expressed gratitude to UNICEF as well as to members and friends to the Church worldwide for their collective efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are grateful to the members of the Church and friends who have made this donation possible,” the Presiding Bishop said, referring to the $20 million donation to UNICEF that the Church announced at the end of February.

Bishop Caussé also thanked UNICEF for it’s singular service and remarkable efforts both before and during the pandemic. “You have done so much to care for children and their families,” he said.

“We hold hope in our hearts, not only of overcoming the pandemic, but of seeing a brighter future for all children, their parents and their families.

“This future becomes a reality as we follow the example of Jesus Christ in loving our neighbor and seeking out those in need.”
