Hundreds of children in Liberia are living without the hope of ever knowing what it is like to grow up in a home where a warm family love is experienced. Since the Liberian civil crisis, hundreds of children who may have either lost their parents , abandon, or separated as a result of migration continue to suffer abuse from distance relations, or domestic child trafficker. In Liberia, civil disturbance, limited resources, poverty, and cultural attitudes contribute to the need for loving, adoptive families. KLF Foundation Impact International Liberia’s program has identify couple of children with no extended family members to care for them or whose parents cannot care for them because of poor economic condition. On the over all, Liberian children face the challenge of poverty, abuse and neglect. The four common types of abuse are physical, emotional, sexual and various forms of neglect. Another serious issues confronting Liberia’s development in this context is child labor; including the worst forms of child labor like child prostitution, force labor and domestic slavery.
