Nothing about this year has been normal. As Americans, we have experienced upheaval and challenges beyond anything in recent human history. The global pandemic has changed the way we live and work and has disproportionately impacted millions of vulnerable people. Our country’s painful but necessary reckoning with the scourge of systemic racism has laid bare the changes we must make, long overdue, as citizens and as a country. These existential challenges remind me of the harrowing impact of the Ebola outbreak in 2015, when life as we knew it ended. For Liberians, the pain and trauma of 2020 echo in profound ways. In Liberia, we have a deep well of resilience – and the mission and work of the Foundation for Women is the living, breathing embodiment of this resilience, every day.
For nearly 15 years, through ups and downs, we are building toward a vision of a transformed Liberia, where economic opportunity, security, and a meaningful and healthy life are available to all. But it is only possible when we work together to create collective impact. What we are doing is bigger than Liberia; it is a model for global change. The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us all of what we already knew: we are all connected. This is our shared world.
This year, we hope that you will renew your annual donation to the Foundation for Women so that we can continue in strength into 2021. Your support funds direct and vital financial resources for families, entrepreneurs, schools, and small businesses in Liberia.
