The region of Montserrado, Grand Cape Mount, Margibi, Bomi and Lofa counties in Liberia, have been hit by an extremely heavy downpour causing flash floods, leaving many towns around Monrovia and surrounding counties flooded. As a result, at least 187 homes have been damaged and property destroyed.

The Lutheran Development Service in Liberia working with other local church partners has raised a 12 months $ 462,038 appeal to support to meet the Shelter, WASH, Food Security and other needs of non-displaced flood-affected persons who suffered a loss of assets or livelihoods.

The project will also support to strengthen Community Disaster Preparedness and Build Community Resilience to Flood and Storm Disasters in regions most affected by floods.
