COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Precautions
April 6, 2020
After a lot of prayer and discernment, the leadership of Back2Back has decided to cancel all summer mission trips through August of 2020 due to COVID-19. This decision does not come lightly. We must do all that we can to protect the children and families we work with, the mission team members who serve with us, and the Back2Back staff.
As you know, mission teams help further the impact in the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children and families. Due to the cancellations of spring and summer mission teams, we are projecting a budget shortfall with ramifications to Back2Back programming and operations at the international sites of approximately $821,000.
As our partner, in lieu of going on your trip this summer, will you prayerfully consider a few options?
- Consider donating all or part of your trip fees to the Back2Back Care Fund so during these critical times programming can continue to support the children and families we serve together?
- We can hold your mission trip fees for one year to be used on a future trip in 2021.
- We can refund your mission trip fees however, the fees must have been donated in the fiscal year 2020.If you donated in a prior year, please reach out to your Mission Coordinator to discuss your options.
We know many of you have been praying for us and for the children and families Back2Back serves. Thank you! Please know that we are praying for you, too.
Director of Missions
