It is a great joy for me to write this review acknowledging the hard work and effort of Relief, Inc. in giving House of Hope Orphanage in Ganta City, Nimba County-Liberia the opportunity to a Memorandum of Understanding between the orphanage and Relief, Inc. We are grateful to God for the opportunity Relief, Inc. is giving the Orphans at House of Hope Orphanage in Ganta City, Nimba County, Liberia., "Creating Life Through Art" We appreciate the drawing items sent recently to our orphans. It is helping the kids move from one level to become Aspiring Artistic. Thanks for the courage given me in getting the kids birth certificates prepared on time for the opening of the orphans trust funds in our orphanage Home. The House of Hope Orphanage family want to say “Thank you ya” and Let God continue to bless and favor Relief Inc. so as to enable other less fortunate children be blessed like ours. Rev.

My name is Michael R. I've known the Founder of Relief Inc more than fifteen years and I haven't seen anyone as dedicated to the cause of people as this individual. The responsibility this organization has demonstrated deserves you donations. " When we give others live".

The African Division of Relief Inc. has an office in Modesto Ca. Recently my children and I attended an International Festival in Modesto. We enjoy this event every year and each year the booth representing Liberia is one of, if not, our favorite.

It's educational with energetic representatives who gladly explain the display. They make it easy as the display is unique. There's more than a map and a list of important resources from Liberia. With rubber, diamonds, cloth, cocoa, and I'm sure I missed something all coming out of Liberia, this booth takes the extra step of putting on display each of the items. You can touch and read in detail about the contributions of the resources.

Not only is this memorable for the kids, but it shows the adults just how diverse and important a country like Liberia is to the world.

Kudos to Phebe Dennis-Fortt and the team out of Modesto involved with ReliefInc. A seemingly one day little event can really count towards increasing awareness when many add up and the individuals put forth the effort for each one. Clearly, that happened at our International Heritage Festival in Modesto, CA.

Thanks again guys.

I am Rev. E B Mcmillan McCauley and I have known Phebe Dennis-Fortt and her husband for over 12 years. When I first encountered these two beautiful individuals, I was at my lowest in life. I was practically homeless and jobless and they were gracious enough to accept me into their home without any reservations. Mr. Fortt, was kind enough to secure me a job at the establishment where he worked and he extended his kindness by getting me my first car in California. When news concerning starving children in Liberia reached them, they quickly embraced the responsibility of sending humanitarian aids to help those needed children. They have opened themselves in search a way that is beyond measure. Currently, many children are in school because of their generosity. I pray that God will enlarging their boarders so that, they can go beyond the walls of Monrovia into the rural areas where the needs are even greater. Kindly keep them within the confines of your prayers.

Hi my name is Grace. I have watched my sister work closely with Relief, Inc. as a volunteer. I like seeing how she has grown in her abilities, and has strengthened her involvement within the community.

Seeing her get involved made me want to get involved. In the past I donated to Relief, Inc's clothes drive that was hosted at Solano community college. Next year I am planning to help by being apart of future fundraisers.

We have known Phebe for many years, well before she founded her exceptionally worthy cause and foundation. Phebe and the associated members of Relief, Inc. are a very passionate and cohesive group of individuals dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the people of Liberia who have lived in the worst conditions for many decades. The organization is extremely well organized, honest and sincere in their mission and committed to making a difference! Though we are not on the receiving end of their efforts as we have no personal need - we see clearly the difference this organization makes in the lives of the impoverished Liberian people this organization targets and assists.

The Staff at Relief, Inc are committed to supporting underprivileged children and families in the United Stated and in a war toned country Liberia. They work tirelessly to ensure that the needs of those less unfortunate are given opportunity to sustain themselves physically, financially and emotionally with chariable donations from their donors. As a Public Relation Representative of the Liberian Community Association I highly recommend that Relief, Inc be recognized for making a sustantial difference in the lives of those they render services to.

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.
