I am Rev. Caleb S. G. Dormah, National Director, YouthConnect Liberia. Relief, Inc and YouthConnect Liberia have a partnership that is going beyond the Ebola era. We were partners in fighting the deadly Ebola Virus in Liberia when others were afraid. Today we are setting the pace for post Ebola recovery affected families (Orphans) and communities. we putting smiles on the faces of our children thru our "Building Library" project and giving communities hope thru our economic Empowering projects. We are changing a nation ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME.

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

Relief Inc. is an incredible organization that I feel honored to serve as a volunteer. My family has volunteered for Relief Inc. for some time now and can't say enough great things about the people and guests they serve. For us, however, what really sets Relief Inc. apart is the way in which volunteers are able to be involved. Every time we go, we bring people along, who then thank us again and again for introducing them to such an incredible experience. I highly recommend Relief Inc. and I salute their efforts!!

Hello! My name is Joanne and I was the Social Media Intern for Relief, Inc. over the summer. Phebe Fortt is a wonderful and inspiring person to work with. Even though I did not have any previous professional experience in the marketing field, she was very patient and understanding with me. It was wonderful being able to witness the impact this organization has created in the community. It really shows how hard work and dedication pays off in the end no matter how small your actions may seem. During my time as an intern, I learned about the history of Liberia and the hardships endured within the country. I also learned about the courage and bravery of the Liberian citizens. I really hope in the future I will be able to continue working with this organization. It has been a fulfilling and enriching experience.

Hello my name is Renee, I volunteer with Relief Inc. It has been such a rewarding, meaningful, and full of just learning new things. With Relief Inc. you see there is beauty in this world where it has been fading in today's atmosphere. You put on the news or listen to the radio station and all you hear is crime, poverty and disgrace. Phebe has such a heart filled eye on change it little by little. It is a great place to volunteer and make a difference.

Phebe followed the collected containers over to Liberia, designating storage and giving out where what was needed & people to help pass out books, clothes, necessities. A whole lot of time & work involved even in getting the containers together for shipping. She needs your support, donations, bucks, prayers & to get the word out for Liberia Relief Inc. Thank You so much.
