Liberians are cautiously beginning to rebuild their country after two devastating civil wars, spanning nearly 15 years, left 250,000 dead and destroyed infrastructure and basic services.
In addition to helping hundreds of thousands of displaced Liberian families, the International Rescue Committee also protected refugees fleeing violence in nearby Ivory Coast and continues to provide them with health care, education, job training and other important resources as their country treads the difficult road to peace.
