Emergency relief starts in Liberia's capital

SOS Children's Village Juah Town has been looted

26/08/2003 - Rice distribution will get underway this week to thousands of refugees at SOS Children's Village Monrovia. The emergency clinic will also open its doors. Bad news from Liberia's second SOS Children's Village in Juah Town: the village has been looted. The co-workers were able to either escape into the bush or be evacuated to Monrovia.
