Centre for Liberian Assistance
Dear friend of the children of Liberia,
The political situation in Liberia may appear stable but the fact remains that more than 50,000 children were left orphaned or displaced by the civil war. How often have you thought about the situation in Liberia and wished there was some way you could help? If only there was a trustworthy vehicle through which you could send help!
Now there is! In July 1995, The Centre for Liberian Assistance children's project was started by a group of Liberian women in California. The goal of this project is to improve the lives of these helpless Liberian children: the innocent victims of war! The Centre for Liberian sent a representative to Liberia to personally distributed food and other necessities directly to over 400 orphans. This visit was captured on video so that you can see with your "own eyes" what was done. In 1996, 1997 and 1998 more food, clothing and goods were sent to Liberia to more orphanages. In 1999 with a generous donation from the Sisters of Charity of Rolling Hills, a container of clothes, books and toys were sent to Liberia for distribution to needy children.
In 2002, The Centre for Liberian Assistance took on a more permanent and significant role. The Centre for Liberian Assistance have established a program through which caring people can sponsor needy Liberian and Sierra Leone children in displaced centers in Liberia as well as refugee children at the Buduburam Refugee Camp in Ghana. For a few dollars a month, a child can be provided with benefits such as food, clothing, Christian education and health care. So far, we have enrolled twenty children at the TRUSS International School of Ghana. The Centre is now launching a massive fund drive to pay for at least fifty additional children . The goal is to raise $10,000.
The Centre remains committed to helping and bringing relief to Liberian children. Your generous donation to The Centre for Liberian Assistance, combined with those of other friends of Liberia, will help make the dreams of our Liberian children a reality. Would you please send a donation to help provide a future full of hope to a needy child? Anything you give is significant and the knowledge that you have helped someone less fortunate will give you a wonderful feeling and change a child's life forever!!!
Please accept our sincere thanks for your support at this critical time.
