For the International Children’s Fund, Liberia is like a flowering bush whose branches have been savagely lopped off. Fortunately,
the roots remain strong and branches are sprouting with the promise of new life and growth.The situation in Liberia is bleak.
The World Health Organization writes "with a GDP per capita of US$140, Liberia emerges from 14 years of conflict as one of the poorest
countries in the world. More than 80% of the population lives on less than $1 per day and 52% live in extreme poverty. Unemployment
stands at 85%. One in six Liberians depend on international food assistance."In spite of this, Liberia is a bright spot
for ICF’s African activity. Before the war we were very active in support of local Christian social ministries, which created a
strong foundation for action after peace finally arrived.Help Us >
Surprisingly ambitious actionThe bright spot in Liberia is the faith of our local ministers, who are committed to a twofold program;
meeting the immediate needs of their people while making a sustainable long-term improvement in their lives. A number of ambitious peacetime programs
are being implemented through support from ICF:
Will optimism be rewarded?Forward-looking, confident people are scarce in a country like Liberia. We’re excited to
work through committed people like Pastors Cole, Gyamfi, Paasewe and Gelego. Will you help us to help them rebuild the country that was once
one of Africa’s proudest? Help now with a tax-deductible donation to the International Children’s Fund.
