In a new video, Bishop Gérald Caussé expresses gratitude to UNICEF and to members and friends of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for their collective efforts to combat COVID-19.
“We are grateful to the members of the Church and friends, who have made this donation possible,” the Church’s presiding bishop says, referring to the US$20 million donation to UNICEF that the Church announced on February 26.
Bishop Caussé thanks UNICEF for its indispensable service, both before and during the pandemic. “You have done so much to care for children and their families and help meet their basic needs and fulfill their potential,” he says.
“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,” Bishop Caussé concludes. “This future becomes a reality as we follow the example of Jesus Christ in loving our neighbor and seeking out those in need.”
