Reconstructing Monrovia, Liberia. Effects Of Civil War
Liberia has been affected by the aftermath of the civil war which lasted 14 long years. Lives were lost and even more were left disrupted and traumatized. An estimated 500,000 people were forcefully evicted and displaced from their homes.
Monrovia is home to most of the displaced persons who reside in settlements built under informality. While some moved back to their respective places post civil war, majority chose to stay behind making the capitals population rise by 600,000.
They live in disease prone areas where good sanitation is lacking. Poverty levels are high and the economy is proving difficult to rebuild. The government have policies of tolerance in place to incorporate these informal settlements into the plan of rebuilding Liberia but how effective are they?
Demolitions are taking place and the needy are being evicted. Where will they go and how will they rebuild their own lives as the government focuses on rebuilding its own self?
How can individuals around the world help the displaced people of Liberia who have been affected by the civil war which has long ended? Can we speak out for them? Can we send them core necessities that will help improve their lives in one way or another?
