2020 was full of surprises for all of us. We experienced many new feelings and emotions, learned to stay in touch despite social distancing, and tried to overcome the new and unknown. The pandemic showed us how valuable our health is, we re-evaluated our priorities and realized the importance of time spent together. Our relationships were challenged every day, along with our patience and trust – trust in ourselves, but also trust in the relationships around us. Trust is not only one of the core values of the BUDDY program, but also the essence of our relationships with our volunteers, their relationships with the children, and our relationships with you: our supporters, friends and partners.
Despite the challenges, 2020 brought us results which we are very grateful for. Especially that our BUDDY children are still joyful and trust their BUDDY volunteers.
We hope you can find a moment to read our annual report for the year 2020.
