Dear Relief Inc.:

My sincere greetings to you in the cause of Education form Totoa City, Lower Bong County, Liberia.

I write to extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to you as an organization catering to vulnerable kids for your level of assistance you are giving to my children. After I lost their father, you are the first person/organization ever to render this kind of assistance to them educationally, which have given me a chance to move around for my own education.

Presently, my two kids are in school after you paid their yearly school tuition, and bought their school uniforms. I am highly grateful to God for you and your organization.

Thank you so much for this great assistance and the opportunity granted me for my kids. I looked forward to you for future other assistance for these children and myself for the betterment of our lives. As a mother to them, I am presently in Grade 12th, trying to complete my high school education.

Again, thanks you and may God Almighty richly bless you and the your donor/organization.

Yours faithfully,

Annie Kollie
Kids’ Mother

Relief, Inc. Heal!

I want to first of all, give thanks to the almighty God for sparing my life and that of my family, form the outbreak of the Ebola virus in Liberia.

This was an in determinant and a painful situation that forced you to neglect your love one.

Special thanks to Relief Inc for affording my son the opportunity in going back to school, that is, by paying his school fees, I notice that Relief Inc is always at my door step giving me a helping hand where there seem to be no way.

After the 2003 – 2004 crisis in our country, Liberia, which cause us to lose our home and everything that we had.
I Started to sell porter (Clay) to sustain my family, we could not afford a meal a day just imagine that!

Do you know what it mean where your child cry for milk, you give him sugar water to drink, because you cannot afford to buy milk for him.

I kept myself hungry when people give me food, jut for my child to have something to eat, I felt that there were no hope in life.

Each night when I go to bed, I pray not to see the break of day, because I don’t want to see my child suffering, so many thing happened until 2006 - 2007 I got in contact with Relief Inc. God first, through the help of my son father Mr. Aloysius Barr, my living condition change, Relief Inc helped us with some Relief Item and started to pay my son school fees, that was when I regain my pride and dignity and also I regain my hope, Relief Inc really heal.

Where you are, you can also be a blessing to someone and God will reward you. give a helping hand to a child who cannot afford a meal a day, a child who does not have home, a child who wants to learn but no financial backing, an Orphan who wants to called you mama and daddy, and wants to be held in the arm of someone, who will say, I love you child, I am going to take care of you.

May the Almighty God bless you in all your endeavor as you continue to help the less fortunate in our society?

This is the first time in my life for an org working in Liberia to give me this kind of opportunity. Today I have become a part of the working force in Liberia since the computer training through which I have received. I have become an asset to my country, Liberia. Thanks again to Relief, Inc. “WOW” sponsorship program. I pray that you help someone else to become an asset to our beloved country, Liberia.

I have receive a very great help from Relief, Inc. meaning that they have trained me in the area of tailoring and now I can make a blouse, skirt, little boys and girls suits. I feel so good about this, because I can do something’s for myself. I don’t have to look up to a man for everything. I can now buy own food, soap, toothpaste, cream, grease, and so on and so on.

My name is Annie Williams. This non-profit (Relief, Inc.) has helped me in so many ways. By sending my daughter to school when I could not afford to do for my child. When my child took sick the non-profit took full responsibility of her medical fees and medications. They have given me a new life by transforming my life, in taking me and my child out of a place where no one would like to live only because of the condition of my life; I had to live in the swamp for more than 28 years. Now today Relief, Inc. has changed my life into a new person.
I am presently living in a nice room with an inside bathroom. Something I have never dreamed about living in a place where the non-profit has paid my rent in full and I can sleep in peace without my land-law giving me problems. So now, I can praise God for this non-profit to continue the good work for people they have not seen but have the passion to help them. May God bless Relief, Inc. organization for all they are doing and will do to change lives in this poor country Liberia.
