After fourteen years of civil war, lasting from 1989 to 2003, the country of Liberia has been devastated and its infrastructure was ruined. The Mercy Ships organization offers free specialized surgeries, developmental assistance, and educational programs for the poor in Liberia. In cooperation with Mercy Ships the DAGOE Foundation deploys this Radio DXpedition. The DXpedition has adopted the ‘AIDS Prevention and Care for HIV infected Children’ charity project to be supported by your donations. With your generous help we are able to give the people of Liberia hope for the future.
