Our annual report
Why Liberia? Fourteen years of devastating civil war in Liberia ended in 2003, leaving infrastructure destroyed and the economy shattered.
The country was only starting to recover when it was hit by Ebola in 2014 and is now facing the further challenge of Covid-19. Concern has been there since 1996, focusing on both development work and emergency aid.
Needs and challenges in Liberia
The needs are enormous in Liberia, with 51% of the population living below the national poverty line. Some 35.5% of children under the age of five are stunted; 33% of females and 13% of males have never attended any school, and only 58.5% have access to protected wells.
In total, 23% of rural households rely on unprotected water sources. Malaria is a major killer of young children and both gender inequality and gender-based violence (GBV) are widespread.
The education system in Liberia was really affected by the 14-year civil war. In essence, an entire generation of children missed out on any education.
We provided nutrition training to 5,341 mothers in the last three years across 214 Mother Groups, and we provided support for the establishment of over 3,409 kitchen gardens.
