Rebuild. Restore. Renew

Who we are

Family Hope International was birth from the desire of Morris Gbolo and Issac Davis – Liberian natives and Ray Lyons and George Riess, to see renewed hope and change in the lives of those deeply affected by civil war. 

From 1989 – 2003, Liberia was wrecked by two consecutive civil wars that left hundreds of thousands dead, many more thousands displaced and the infrastructure of Liberia in ruins. Families were torn apart, an entire generation unschooled, and many fled as refugees into neighboring countries. 

In the last ten years, Liberia has experienced dramatic growth and progress – but there is still so much work to be done. We will need each other.  

We want to see families come back together, and those most at risk for distribution and instability be given the tools with which to rebuild. We believe that education, in many forms, is key to the rebuilding process. 

Jesus calls us to hope! He calls us to look after “the least of these.” He calls us to respond when we see a brother or sister in need. It is our desire to respond to the need we see in Liberia. Would you consider joining us?
