The three workers, Emmanuel Sharpolu, ADRA Liberia director; Kaare Lund, ADRA Norway director; and ADRA's driver, Musa Kita, were headed to a Norwegian-funded project when they drove into the area of unrest. ADRA's implementing partner, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), has identified the remains of ADRA's burned-out vehicle in the location of the fighting.
Efforts are underway to locate the three ADRA workers still missing, but continued unrest in the area poses a challenge. Updates on the situation will be released as and when information becomes available.
Providing individual and community development and disaster relief without regard to political or religious association, age or ethnicity, ADRA is present in more than 125 countries.
