Signs for Hope partners with CAS and ACFI (African Christians Fellowship International) to help care for these precious children so close to the heart of God. ACFI is the indigenous Christian Church in Liberia who has been caring for these deaf children since its director Ed Kofi’s own son lost his hearing many years ago –1997—after battling meningitis. CAS continues their support of these needy children, through ACFI, even though Liberia has a moratorium on adoption.
"And the King will say, 'I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!” Matthew 25:40
Liberia, West Africa remains in the top 10 (most often in the top 5) poorest countries in the world. In comparison, Haiti is around 20th following the earthquake of 2010. 83.9% of Liberians are living in abject poverty. 83.7% of Liberians are living on as little as $1.25 or less a day, and 83.9% are deprived of cooking fuel (wood or coal). Liberia is a country still recovering from two decades of civil wars. Most Liberians are still living in survival-mode. Their biggest concern when the sun rises each morning; what will they be able to find to eat that day and how will they be able to cook it? The two previous civil wars left this nation ineconomic ruin with almost no infrastructure; no roads, no electricity, no sewage or garbage disposal and very little clean water. Despite nearly seven years of peace, Liberia is still one of the poorest countries in the world with the number of orphaned and indigent children approaching 200,000.
By donating $40 a month through the Christian Adoption Services' African Child Sponsorship program, you can help provide scholarships for children who have been orphaned or whose families no longer care for them. Your support helps pay for food, basic medical care, teacher and caretaker stipends, school supplies, and maintenance of the school and home facilities for all the children. Would you be willing to commit to showing the love of Christ in a tangible way by monthly sponsoring—Heart Adopting—one or more of these deaf children in Liberia?
Contact Signs for Hope for additional information on how you can become the hands and feet of Jesus by “Heart Adopting” a Deaf child in Liberia, West Africa.
