Hope for the Nations Liberia
The work of HOPE Liberia began in late 1997 when the country was in the process of recovering from a devastating 8-year civil war in which approximately 13% of the pre-war population was killed. We began our work by placing 85 war-affected children into 47 foster homes. In 2003, war broke out again and the social, political, and economic fabric of the Ganta area was ripped apart, but is now gradually being rewoven. Tragically, the war left its victims, mostly widows and orphans, in a place of desperate poverty, hopelessness and disarray.
Multitudes of children were left abandoned or orphaned. However, many of these children now have a stable home environment, and each child in our care has free tuition at the Hope Academy. Hope for the Nations Liberia continues our work today bringing children into families, and hope into Liberia’s future.
