Volunteer Liberia

 

Volunteer Work Liberia


Today the after-effects of the long civil war are still being felt with one in ten of the entire population being an orphaned child in a country where there simply aren't enough adults to care for them, and a country where serious mental health problems as a result of the war are epidemic. This is hardly surprising when you consider that 87% of all children in Liberia had witnessed a family member killed, 60% had seen other children beaten to death whilst 84% reported that they had experienced being "surrounded by, lying underneath or stepping on" dead bodies. As one girl reminisced "When I close my eyes, all I can see is the war. I often think about taking my own life."



There are many volunteer work placements in Liberia focusing on education, mental health and orphan care however we would recommend that only older, experienced volunteers go there. Yes Liberia is much in need of volunteer help, but the challenges there are so severe they can be overwhelming for a volunteer not used to such conditions. Please note that many of these volunteer opportunities in Liberia have been put on hold because of travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully they will be back up and running soon. In the meantime, if you run or know of a volunteer work project in Liberia let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!
