Welthungerhilfe structure and engagement in the country
Since the end of the civil war in 2003, Welthungerhilfe Liberia has implemented more than 40 projects with a total budget of approximately €70 million.
Initially WHH’s engagement consisted of emergency-oriented programs, aside from the Ebola response, this focus has now shifted to a portfolio of rehabilitation and development projects guided by the Liberian government’s Agenda for Transformation, the Economic Stabilization and Recovery Plan, and WHH’s global strategy.
WHH is currently implementing 10 developmental projects amounting to €56 million in two focus Regions in Liberia, the southeast (Grand Gedeh, River Gee, Sinoe, River Cess and Maryland) and northwest (Montserrado and Bomi). Our activities include urban, peri-urban and rural agriculture, food and nutrition security, infrastructure including road access (farmers to markets, schools to communities and communities to health facilities), Land Rights Advocacy, WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene), basic education and vocational training, as well as affirmative action for women.
