Relief Efforts in Liberia
CARE restarted programs in Liberia in 2008, having last worked there 25 years previously. Our ultimate goal is to help consolidate peace in the country by building a productive, fair and cohesive society whose members have enough food and a good quality of life. Our programs – which particularly target women and young people – focus on food security, water and sanitation, earning a decent living and environmentally sustainable farming. We train community members who can then train others, offer technical support where needed, run awareness-raising campaigns (including responding to the 2014 Ebola outbreak), and work alongside the government to build skills and knowledge.
