Progress in the Midst of the Pandemic

Dear Friends of RHL,

While we are grateful that COVID has not ravaged Liberia as feared, we remain vigilant and continue to lead community efforts to stop the spread of the virus.

The pandemic has caused unique and multiple challenges as we've continued our work to support vulnerable children and their households. Our staff has done admirably in spite of the numerous difficulties they face in their day to day activities.

RHL tutors have been visiting children at their homes, practicing reading and providing learning materials, while schools remain closed. It is projected that the drop out rate for Liberian children, and girls especially, will increase significantly after this period of school closures. We are working diligently to ensure that this is not the case for the children we support. Presently, schools are planning to reopen in December and we are working to ensure the children are ready to resume classes.

We have just launched our newest project: mental health and women's empowerment. We have long recognized the need for mental health support due to the compounded trauma Liberians have experienced from the war years, the Ebola epidemic, and the hardships of poverty. The goal of the project is to treat depression in women, which will positively impact not only their wellbeing, but their children's as well. Stay tuned for more information about this project.

Thank you for your support and generosity. Your donation has improved the quality of life of vulernable children in an often neglected community. Each dollar makes a huge difference. Thank you for investing in the future of these children.

Sincerely,

Saundra
