Urgent humanitarian relief for Liberia

12/08/2003 - With President Charles Taylor having resigned from office yesterday, co-workers of SOS Children's Villages observed a considerable reduction of tension in the country. The humanitarian situation of the people is, however, desperate, with food and drugs not available there. Even those 5,000 people having stayed on the grounds of the SOS Children's Village until yesterday could not be provided with sufficient food supplies during the past days.
