The impact of 14 years of civil war in Liberia has been devastating to the nation and its infrastructure. For children, the impact is unimaginable. Many of the children were orphaned and then forced into combat, participating in and witnessing the horrors of war. The trauma these children have faced is overwhelming. Phebe Grey Orphanage was built in 1996 and has served as a beacon of hope for children.
Liberian Overseer Moses Hart speaks with passion as he describes the circumstances and needs of the orphanage. Currently, Phebe Grey cares for 89 children, but truly needs to expand its services. The constant instability of many necessary services makes it one of the most challenging places to serve. Missionaries Max and Debbie Thompson were deployed in early 2013 to help rebuild infrastructure and programming for the orphanage.
