Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.
Due to lack of resources, House of Refuge can only afford to feed their children one cooked meal every other day. Shepherd's Heartbeat is solely responsible for feeding and caring for the children at the orphanage. Your monthly gift of $25 or annual gift of $300 will go a long way in off-setting the cost of food for these children.
Partnership With WeRemnant
From 1989 to 2003, Liberia went through a brutal civil war that lasted 14 years where more than 250,000 individuals lost their lives, and thousands were internally displaced. For a first hand account of the atrocities of Liberia's civil war please watch the testimony of Clarice Richards, the founder of Shepherd's Heartbeat. Approximately ten years after the civil war, 2014 to 2016, the Ebola virus ravaged through the country. Thousands of adults lost their lives, leaving behind thousands more of desperate orphans. An unfortunate casualty from the war and the virus are the abandoned children roaming the streets begging for food and the many young girls, as young as 10, showing up in clinics pregnant. Many of these rural village clinics have no medicine to treat their patients, yet they fight to continue to offer hope. The community of Brewerville, has one such clinic.
Brewerville is a small town of about 300 hundred people. However, the Esther and Robinson Health Center, is open 24 hours, 7 days a week, and treats on average of 15,000 patients per year. The clinic is the major and only treatment center for disabled children, orphans and very poor families from surrounding farmlands, villages and towns. Although it is the only clinic in the area it is lacking in medical supplies and proper examination tools. This is the clinic that cares for our children.
MERCI (Medical Equipment Recovery of Clean Inventory) is an organization started by Charles and Peggy in their basement and together, over a period of five months, have collected and sorted just over $170,000 worth of medical supplies. Because of their faithfulness, WeRemnant and Shepherd's Heartbeat received medical supplies to ship to the Esther and Robinson Health Center in Liberia.
We have partnered with WeRemnant, another United States based non-profit organization with a mission to help the underprivileged around the world. Shipments of medical equipment have already begun and continue to be prepped and shipped. Shepherd's Heartbeat are the feet on the ground in Liberia to control receiving and distribution.
Your support of the clinic enables our children to receive free medical treatment.
