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.

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.

Over 10 years of experience with this organization, carrying the vision forward helping impoverished women and children that endured a 14 ½ year civil war in Liberia. These are the people that need it the most with no hope of a positive future by means of educational supplies, tuition and training.

We understand how hard it is to deliver supplies and relief to those in need, we understand the challenges. We know what the obstacles are, and how to get past them. Relief is hope to the challenge!

I've done bookkeeping for Relief, Inc. I've always been aware of the lack of resources in some regions of Africa but was never more convinced that our help is needed until I met Phebe. She is knowledgable, determined and organized. She actually makes trips to her country and even finds the time and energy to help our local community with food drives and other needs. Her compassion is contagious.

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

Dream and pleasure working with humanitarian organization, Started in 2002 when Liberia was going through a serious civil problem-bulelts flying everywhere. Talked to Phoebe on the phone - gathered information to start the not for profit. no internet service in liberia - would be calling PHoebe with bullets flying. 2004, 2005, 2006 - first shipment to people destitute from the war. there were no fees charged - received and were so happy. That's when people of Liberia understood what he was doing and he can see the difference. The community of New Kru Town of approximately 20,000 people -impoverished- most of the poeple there go to the beach, fish and go to the market and sell. The illiteracy rate is high there - and the people are barely able to take care of themselves.

I have worked with Phebe since the inception of the organization. Phebe is passionate about helping the people of Liberia. She has been relentless in providing different solutions for the people of Liberia. Watching her collect, pack and ultimately distribute the food, clothing and medical supplies in Liberia was truly inspirational. Watching her work with her local volunteers and educate them about the Liberian people has been stimulating for everyone involved as well. Phebe has changed lives with her activities both in Liberia and here at home.
