I started contributing to Relief, Inc. many years ago to help children attend school. I saw the joy and concern in Phebe's face when she talked about helping the children, and felt the need to be part of such a caring organization. As Relief, Inc. grew, Phebe expanded the charity to include helping women learn skills to help them earn a living. Her passion for these women and children is quite evident to anyone who talks to her.

Money is tight right now, but I still donate to Relief, Inc. whenever I have any extra because I want to be part of an organization that helps people who need a helping hand.

I have talked to Phebe many times about Relief, Inc's contribution to the people of Liberia, and have seen the pictures of the happy faces of the recipients.

I am not in any position to tell them how to run their charity. I think they are doing quite well just as they are.

Relief Inc. was the charity of choice for my high school students. They felt they were actually making a difference. We packed barrels and loaded an actual container with clothes and supplies for the people pf Liberia, Africa. We were later shown the actual video of the barrels being unloaded and supplies distributed among the Liberian people. Students claim to have recognized items they personally packed. Even more impressive is they saw the CEO Phebe Dennis-Fortt working hard and sweating while handing out the donations to the people. How often do you get to see a positive end result like that? Those students helped others, but working for Relief Inc. helped my students become better people.

Unfortunately I live too far away to be of great help to Relief, Inc. However, I admire the dedication of the founder. She is truly dedicated to the education, medical concerns, living conditions and financial liberation of the Liberian people, especially the women who have been oppressed for so long. She works morning, noon and night in her efforts to bring relief to the people suffering in Liberia.

I have never seen such tenacity, fortitude and love for any cause, emanating from one individual human being before in my life. Every day the founder wakes up with a fresh determination to make things better for the people in her native country.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen how the founder works selflessly to make living conditions better for Liberians in her home country. Her dedication, compassion, empathy and love for the Liberian people are incomparable. Not only does she work tirelessly for the Liberian cause, but she helps to provide for unfortunate people in the United States and does community training and outreach also.

Have branches in other cities so more help can be provided.

Relief, Inc. has been a beautiful non-profit to volunteer for. The passion to help others runs strong in the veins of all its volunteers and it's founder Phebe Fortt. Just this December we were able to distribute canned goods, turkeys, and toys to over 800 local who were in desperate need. One wonderful aspect of Relief is that we work hard at helping both locally in Central California and globally in Liberia. It's especially such a gift to be able to help Tasama Elementary School in Liberia, the children who go there are going to have just that more of a chance at a better future. Relief, Inc. is such a unique and inspiring non-profit.

Flipping through my personal experienced of the civil war in Liberia, the brutal killing, murdered, and the inconsiderate raping of innocent women and misused of children as “Child Soldiers”, I can clearly piece together the necessity of the work and outreach of Relief Inc.

The disastrous
massacred, the murdering of parents, the destruction of the country’s educational system, the water system and electricity, the economical devastations, as well as the looting of Liberia's resources have left people of Liberia hopeless and in a dying need of assistance.

We at Relief Inc have heard the dying cry of these people, the orphans, and the less privilege women, men and children wandering the streets daily in search of a hot-meal and a place to sleep. We are dedicated to their basic needs of water, food, clothing’s and shelter; as well as to their educational dream. It is indeed our mission to give back hope to the hopeless and encourage each one - that there’s yet hope after the darkest firing rain.

We understand that we cannot do this alone that’s why we are seeking your humanitarian gesture in assisting the needy.

Come join the team of dedicated warm passionate people and make a difference. CCDennis3

I persoanally know Ron Fortt and Phebe. Their passion for helping the people in need of Liberia motivated me not only to contribute but I know work with the United Nations Infopoverty Program where i will introduced anyone that may help Relief Inc. Also when I visited their beautiful home Phebe brought my wife and I out to the garage where there was wall to wall boxes earmark for Liberia. They've turned their home into a warehaouse and leave their cars on the driveway. THe least I can do is to support them.

Relief, Inc. os an organization designed to help the Women and Children of Liberia. When I first came upon this organization, I was impressed and willing to do whatever I could to help this organization to be successful.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

When the moving van came to collect all the donations and Mr. and Mrs. Fortt took the trip to Liberia to deliver the collected donations the energy felt during and after the trip was wonderful. Success is a great feeling.

The main change this organization requires is an increase in financial donations. The more financial help Relief, Inc. receives will allow the donations collected to be shipped more often to those in Liberia and in in need.
