Currently, there are over two hundred thousand orphaned children in Liberia who lost one or both parents to the deadly Ebola virus or Civil War. These children are at great risk of exploitation, emotional and physical abuse, trafficking and sexual exploitation, hunger, neglect, and poverty. Numerous children already suffer from post-traumatic stress due to their tragic circumstances. For these children, the chances of having a healthy, adult life are limited.
DKF’s work with orphans in Liberia is guided by the scripture verse, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. (Matthew 25:40).” We are committed to helping orphans have a chance at a better life through direct financial and spiritual support.
