Hi My Name is Maier N. Goodridge and a Liberian. This review is about some of the work that was done in Liberia by Relief, Inc. (This is a truth eye's accurate information.) Relief doing the heat of the war in Liberia decided to help her people with so many issues, how can I do this, she asked. I am not on the ground but I think a litter bit of this and that will do. So Relief, Inc., moved in 2006 with a 40 foot container load of supply ranged from food, beds, medical equipment, medical supplies, cloth, and school supplies etc. Which was distributed to schools, hospitals and internally displace persons. Relief did not stop there she decided not just to give a man a fish but teach him to fish. Relief Inc., awarded scholarships to women to enable them to enroll in the tailoring a skills training program at the Maryann Cheeseman School of Home Arts. On Broad street Monrovia, Liberia. West/Africa. Student’s form this program today are now business owners and are providing for their families. Additional Relief Inc. provided Scholarships for young school boys and girls. Many other students benefited that were about to drop out of primary schooling if it were not for the donations that Relief Inc. made happen.
C.H. Rennie Hospital Healthcare facility in Kakata also benefited from medical supplies and beds, matters and medical beds. The Redemption hospital on bush road island New Kru town Monrovia which was host to most of the ill (IDPs) and has ran out of hospital beds this hospital rejected sick people because of lack of beds. Relief Inc. also provided beds, medical drugs and medical equipment. Relief Inc. also provided transportation for those items to get to the people on time.
With the challenges, rainy days and storms that Relief, Inc. has weathered. Relief Inc. continues to move forward where other missions have failed. There seems to be misunderstanding of the roll of the missions by people who have worked in Liberia with Relief Inc., and within the Liberian government where corruption seems to come from every end. Phebe has the needed knowledge and information to continue to make progress. Phebe is a strong woman with the heart of love for humanity.
As for the Financial Ministry in Liberia and corruption associated with it. It took someone with real dedication like Phebe to overcome one of the worst problems in Liberia’s history. Phebe did not give up she stood the test of time and made sure the 40ft container with Relief supply reached the most needy people in Liberia in 2006 and then again seven years later in 2013 during the Ebola crises.

I am very grateful to God Almighty and Relief Inc. for the opportunity given me to serve as a Volunteer Teacher for the Art kids in Ganta House of Hope Orphanage. It has improve my artist works and shown me a better way of coordinating or working with kids that are orphans.
I highly appreciate this opportunity and pray that God continue to bless and favor Relief Inc. in all their endeavors in helping less fortunate children in Liberia and rest of the world.

Many Regards,

Relief it is a fantastic organization I volunteered and we put books together and donated clothes to ship in two containers to be sent to Africa I have also experienced a great speaker that relieve helped he gave an amazing testimonial that's how I really think has helped town and his family. I have been to several functions that relief Inc has put on to help those in Africa I had an amazing time. I remember about 2 years ago relief and put on a community that at Christmas time to help those that are less fortunate in the community. I would definitely support this organization.

My name is Kwame Emmanuel Ross, i am Executive Director for Liberia Center for Labor Empowerment (LICLE). i use to work for the students of Liberia where i serve as President of the Liberia National Students Union (LINSU) ,the umbrella organization responsible for students in Liberia, it was at that moment i first came across the Relief Inc, on our landscape through its representative -Aloysius Barr. Relief inc, has gone deep into the lowest base of our society paying special attention to the neglected class which constitutes the orphans and women. before i became to work for the Government of Liberia as Assistant Minister for the Ministry of Planning & Economic Affairs, i can recall that Relief Inc, started as small seed in Liberian making small donations of food and nonfood items, but i can testify now that Relief has grown bigger in Liberia like a giant size tree in the forest that provides shelter for many.
With the multiple socio-economic problems that were imposed on us from the 14years of civil unrest, Relief has been very strategic in meeting the needs of the people of Liberia. the absence of food ,shelter and clothing compounded the complication our war torn country which made it appeal compelling for international organization like Relief to give practical attention. Relief interventions have been very critical and timely in addressing the nakedness, homelessness and hunger of our people in Liberia particularly women and children. Relief medical intervention during the period of EBOLA kept the heads of our people above the water of sickness and provided light of hope for those who were pressed under the shadow of death by Ebola. You provided books for students sitting in empty school building and meal for children left home hungry in search for education whose parent can barley afford a daily meal. your work will go a long way in history.
It is my prayer that many will pull resources and join Relief INC, in this struggle to ensure food, clothing, medication and other non food items are available, affordable, accessible, reachable and safe by making meaningful contribution for war affected nation weigh down by poverty. You will always be remembereded for the amount of lives you transform. MAY GOD BLESS RELIEF INC BOUNTIFULLY TO MEET THE NEEDS OF SUFFERING HUMANITY

i have volunteered for Relief Inc for the past seven years and found it most rewarding. And through those years Relief have been assisting Liberians girls, boys, women and men in health, education and donating relief items to old folks and the needy.

The WOW component has help more women in getting back on their feet in their various home not being just house wife but income provider.

It is through Relief Inc. that I got to understand the importance of volunteerism in it entirety. I am very proud to be a volunteer of Relief Inc because their ways of implementing project activities is so unique, visible and transparent.

Many, many thanks and appreciations to Relief Inc/Liberia.

Kind regards,

Joseph F. Varney

It is sadly surprising how little we really know about what is going on in other parts of the world. I spent a great amount of time speaking with Phebe Dennis-Fortt about Relief, Inc and the work they do in Liberia. Then I saw the photos of the children so excited to receive their first book and their first writing tools and the pure joy and excitement on their faces just made my heart warm beyond belief. Then to see the hospitals they helped set up during the Ebola crisis, it really brings it all home to see it first hand in the photos. The work Relief, Inc. is doing not only in Liberia but also locally is so amazing and commendable. The world is a better place having Relief, Inc and the work they do.

Relief, Inc. under the leadership of Ms. Dennis Phebe, is an organization that stands out in the community to educate the public / community of health issue impacting the lives of children / the elderly / less fortunate, including the many who are underserved.

Not only does Relief, Inc. educate, but also advocate on behalf of mankind on the specific health issue (Ebola) that's not only impacting countries such as Liberia, but has now been of ultimate concern to its entrance into this of the United States..

In that Relief, Inc. can fulfill its obligations to the needs of children, the Organization requires faithful support by way of donations / sponsorship. Those of us with the spirit of love / caring need to act upon our duty to join in with Relief, Inc. will all the support / assistance we can give. Truly blessings will follow upon our act to oblige.

Rev. Willie A. Douglas
