In 2015 the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement continued to help thousands of men, women and children in need of medical aid, training, and economic support in Liberia.

We provided safe drinking water, visited detainees, trained women, carried out disaster management training and provided maternity, baby and child health care. We also continued to respond to needs arising from the 2014 Ebola outbreak.

Highlights of our work in Liberia in 2015

128,635 people affected by Ebola received psycho-social support.
4,000 women in 179 communities received maternal health care.
5,445 people were trained in hygiene promotion.
10,546 fire victims from 90 communities received housing materials.
2,000 detainees received visits in 16 places of detention.
579 members of the armed forces benefited from IHL training.
