The Ebola Epidemic that broke out in Liberia in 2014 killed Junior's parents at the ETU Bong County central Liberia. Junior his parents were taken to the ETU as one of the first groups that were affected by the pandemic in 2014 in the village of Knuckles Farm near Suakoko. Junior survived with his Siblings Mary, Martha, Jonah and Tina.

We are also support two of James children Peter and Princess at the Lutheran High School. I got to know Junior's story through Christiana an America who read Junior story from the New York Times.
Donations will help aid organizations to support these orphaned children to have a future and brings Junior educational dream to life. As Christiana wrote to me, "Thank you for the wonderful work you are doing as part of VAAFD. I found your organization recently after reading an article by the New York Times reporter, Sheri Fink, about the Ebola outbreak, http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/10/world/africa/the-capricious-hand-of-ebola-one-boy-survives-as-others-die.html?_r=0. Junior 8 years old.
Our continued efforts in human development, protection, Junior hopes one day to attend school. I have been in touch with the reporter, Ms. Fink, about the possibility of funding Junior's schooling. Junior's parents both died of Ebola, and he now lives with his aunt and uncle in the village of Knuckles Farm near Suakoko, LIberia. I am wondering if you have any advice about how I might support Junior's schooling.
