Today, like every day in rural Liberia, men, women and children are perishing from sickness, disease and accidents due to poverty. Many of these are preventable and unheard of in our developed country, but in a developing country like Liberia, treatment is unavailable due to lack of professional doctors, hospitals and medicine. When living on less than $2 a day, there is a fine margin between having enough and despair. Children are becoming orphans daily, without any hope for a future.
Three years ago, this was Alex’s story. His single mother went into the far-away woods to hunt for firewood needed to cook their dinner. Alex, then 4 years old, had to stay home to watch his baby brother. This day started out like every day, except that his mother did not come home. She got bitten by a Green Bush Viper, related to the King Cobra, one of the most venomous snakes on earth. By the time she got to her sister’s hut for help, she was deathly ill. Because there was no medical care available, she died in her sister’s arms. This tragedy made Alex an orphan.
When Rev. Boduo, the founder of Esorm, found Alex living in the shadows of his aunt’s one room hut, he invited him to come to New Hope Christian Academy. A generous sponsor is supporting his education which is changing his life.
With your help, New Hope Christian Academy Elementary school is changing lives. Providing a child with an education starts a ripple effect throughout the community, raising leaders that will impact future generations. When you sponsor a child, you not only change their life, but yours also, when you know you have given hope for a child’s future.
