In the words of our field team, Government agencies and local NGO's only go where there are roads for cars. No one goes to the villages you have to walk to, except everyday gandhis. Porous borders between Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone accelerated the spread of Ebola. Violence is spreading in nearby Mali, Nigeria, and beyond. Strategic, remote border communities could make the difference between peace and war, health and disease, abundance and starvation, throughout the region.
With 2 motorbikes we can reach remote border villages for Ebola prevention, reforestation, permaculture, & peacebuilding. Help us supply local clinics, restore forests, prevent drought, train local farmers in sustainable agriculture, & strengthen community peacebuilders. As violence spreads elsewhere, we are building health, stability, self-sufficiency and resilience in strategic communities ignored by governments and NGO's alike. In short, when the border is safe, the country is safe.
If West Africa is healthy and stable, the rest of the continent, and therefore the world, will benefit. Liberia's border communities are key to ensuring that the entire region can resist terrorism, violence, epidemics, drought and starvation. Our specially trained and experienced, multi-ethnic team can provide this crucial support to ensure regional stability - IF we can get there. Help us reach these vulnerable communities now, while there's time to create resilience, peace and health.
