Lee University, in partnership with World Missions, is returning to the Phebe Grey Orphanage in Liberia this year. Last year, the organizations funded a 700-book library, a gift of several classroom computers, and the installation of solar-charged lights for the entire facility. Additionally, they provided supplementary meals to the orphanage staple of beans and rice, as well as mosquito netting to help protect the children from Malaria and other insect-borne ailments.
These accomplishments were significant and meaningful, but there remains more to be done before Lee University and World Missions are finished at Phebe Grey.
The facility needs new security measures, including a perimeter wall, to keep away thieves and other criminals and protect the 172 children and the resources being invested in their future. The teachers need to be paid, new Christ-believing teachers recruited, additionally more school supplies, and an expansion of their existing library to allow for much broader education.
It is toward this purpose that Lee University commits itself for the next year, establishing a future for the kids of Phebe Grey and instilling a heart for missions in its own student body.
