Liberia: another chance

30-04-2011 Feature

It has been more than seven years since Liberia’s civil war came to an end. The conflict, which began in 1989, killed over 250 thousand people and displaced tens of thousands more. Today, Liberians are gradually picking up the broken pieces of their lives. But the scars left by 14 years of conflict remain visible, especially among the country’s youth. In this radio documentary, reporters Polly Fields and Winston Daryoue take a look at some of the youth programmes run by the Liberia National Red Cross and ask young Liberians how they are coping with life in the aftermath of the conflict.
