NFTN travels to the Liberia/Guinea border to give women’s care, childbirth care, child care, wound management, teaching & training, and relief from worms & parasites.
March 2009 – Ongoing
Liberia is a country in Sub Sahara West Africa emerging from a decade of civil war. The conflict lasted for a period of almost thirteen years and left the country in a state of demobilization. Since the end of the conflict in 2003, Liberia is attempting to rebuild their health facilities, increase their scarce healthcare workforce and improve badly weakened infrastructures from ravages of a decade of fighting. Presently, Liberia has 60 physicians for 3.4 million people and eight nurses for every 100,000 people to help care for individuals.
The Liberian people are in desperate need of equipment, materials and educational supplies that will educate and train their children and adolescents: these materials will help future nurses to be the healthcare healers of tomorrow who will go out into the communities as health ambassadors to educate and train their loved ones against the ravages of malaria and other diseases. NFTN is in partnership with the Christian Revival Church in Liberia and is involved with supporting their ministry activity in regions of the country.
