What we are doing
Action Against Hunger has been in Liberia since 1990. Over the years, our approach to supporting the Liberian population has evolved as civil war came to an end and other challenges such as Ebola swept through the country.
We have continued to work with the Ministry of Health and local health authorities in order to ensure that malnutrition is addressed countrywide and that it's causes and effects are taken into consideration in forward planning projects. We have also trained health personnel at local and national level to ensure our projects are sustainable.
Our programmes in Liberia include:
- Nutrition and health programmes
- Supporting the creation of 35 mother support groups to promote improved infant and young child feeding care and practices in the community
- Providing clean water and sanitation facilities as well as building new water points particularly in schools and health centres
- Training up local communities to maintain water points
