Liberian Humanitarian Group Assessment Report On southeastern Liberia
By: J. Moses Gray/ Editor
Grand Kru County
Mr. Jriken disclosed that Grand Kru residents are in dire need of humanitarian assistance including wearing, educational materials, medication and farming tools among other essential human needs.
Most of the school-going children, Mr. Jrikan said, are out of school, especially the girls. He attributed the situation to lacks of funds to support the children. He said while in the County, there are disabled children about 2,000 and other disadvantaged children over 3,000 of them whose condition he described as very grave.
He told The INQUIRER newspaper that the assessment team was taken aback when the members were informed by the residents that despite several appeals to humanitarian groups as well as people of Goodwill, nothing has been done for the residents of Grand Kru.
The assessment team noted that, most of the residents are impoverished and malnourished almost beyond description. The children are half naked, lack of food and adequate medical attention.
The Concerned Children in Difficult Circumstances, (CCDC) is a voluntary, non-for-profit, non-governmental organization established 1993 and legally registered under the laws of Liberia to cater the physical, social, emotional, etc. needs of children in difficult circumstances.
CCDC presently runs homes for 600 underprivileged children in urban and rural Liberia. It caters to 1,500 children with disabilities in the Community under our Community Based Rehabilitation Programme (CBR). CCDC also engaged in several development programs, including childcare, food and nutrition, health, education, agriculture, etc. in the Community. CCDC believes that through the help of other humanitarian Organizations, Philanthropists, the Christian Community, and other Goodwill people, her work will be the center of their hope and courage.
