Don and Melanie Riley and their four children joined our Hope for Home team in February 2016. Having served for two years in Liberia, the foundation for expanding ministry had already been laid.
Living in the very remote area of Bong County, they have established a sponsorship program for orphans in the region. The orphan crisis was bad due to a lack of medical care, malnutrition and war, but was compounded during the Ebola outbreak of 2014.
Their sponsorship program focuses on providing short-term assistance and developing a plan for long-term independence for the child and their caregivers when possible.
At the same time, they minister locally by distributing Children's Action Bibles to schools and discipling teachers in using this tool to share the Gospel.
