What does Dignity Liberia do? Love, support, learn, teach and give back. It sounds so vague in our world of action. “But what do you do?” We build relationships with Liberians; we work alongside them to provide resources for their visions in healthcare. We hold their hands, bring supplies, and listen to what they need for teaching skills in the rehab facility and schools. We learn from them how to give to their needs and their future, we show them love in a practical way. Of profound importance in our mission, we come back, maybe in six months, maybe a year.
As one of our Liberian friends conveyed, “the organizations who come in and work for a little while and leave help us for a short while, but Dignity Liberia loves and supports us for a lifetime, we can depend on Dignity Liberia and have faith they will come back to continue to support us in our journeys.”
Understanding the medical needs of the community, performing if the opportunity is there, providing the resources they need, and loving them to bring their visions and our visions to fruition. Yes, each trip to visit is only a building block along the way, but each step takes us further in our journey, as individuals and organizations.
