World Renew has been working in West Africa since 1985.
West Africa suffers from chronic drought, poor economic infrastructure, and weak government services in education and health. World Renew assists the local churches with an anti-harassment of school girls program and trauma healing.
COUNTRY COVID UPDATE
Countries are closing airports and borders and some programs have had to be cancelled or postponed because of governments banning meetings and assembly of people. Still, staff feel hopeful that governments are taking strong and decisive action before the number of cases in the region has grown large. World Renew’s work in the region continues, particularly our trauma-healing work, which is disseminated through the radio and continues to inspire hope and healing in families and communities, even as we practice physical distancing.
