The Evangelical Church of Liberia is very grateful to our donors for partnering with us to demonstrate the love of God to a hurting, needy people. Your partnership has enhanced the work of our ministry, and it has also given the church a good testimony, and we are very grateful.
In March of 2014, the first confirmed case of the deadly Ebola virus was reported in Lofa, northern Liberia having spread from the neighboring country of Guinea where it had been spreading fast and claiming many lives. By the end of 2014, Liberia became the epicenter of the deadly viral outbreak that claimed more than 10,000 lives in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. During the outbreak that lasted for a little over two years, Liberia’s already fragile health care system completely collapsed, the economy broke down and the result was chaos, trauma, death, untold suffering and pain.
Liberia was officially declared Ebola free just over two months ago, and Guinea and Sierra Leone have also been declared free of the outbreak, but the effects of the virus still linger on and will probably continue for some years to come. In the midst of this situation the Evangelical Church of Liberia through her emergency relief response, aims to demonstrate the love of God in a tangible way to the needy, and use every opportunity to share Christ.
