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.

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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