Last night Buckner Peru celebrated its 10th anniversary with a banquet at one of Lima’s hottest special event venues overlooking the Pacific coast.
It was a cause for celebration. Since its inception, Buckner Peru has grown from a small NGO providing mission trips and humanitarian aid to a full-service 35-member staff that piloted national foster care, planted two Buckner Family Hope Centers serving 200-plus families per year, and established transitional homes that have seen 27 girls graduate and become professionals. We have all answered a call.
In just a short time, the incredible staff of Buckner Peru under the leadership of Claudia Leon has answered God’s call to care for the children and families of Peru and I commend them for their passion, energy and heart for those they serve.
