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.
