Liberia, a country the size of Tennessee, is one of the poorest countries in the world. With an unemployment rate of 85% , an average daily wage of $1.00, and the ravages of 14 years of civil war, the foundation for growth and prosperity is weak. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf states, “Even still, the people of Liberia have faith in new beginnings. Their dreams are not complicated. They just want the simple things that most people take for granted; to live their lives in peace, get a good education, and be able to provide for their families”. Civil War has left this country devastated. Many are missing arms or legs, and most are missing at least one family member. Countless young boys were kidnapped into rebel gangs, drugged and given guns to ravage through villages killing anything that moved. The hate and greed that ruled this country for 14 years has left its mark. Most noticeably are the estimated 250,000 orphans. They need our help!
