Liberia Country Overview

Geographic location: Liberia is a sub-Saharan nation in West Africa bordering the north Atlantic Ocean to the southwest. 

Population: Half of Liberians live in severe poverty which means they are severely deprived of basic needs like food, clean water, shelter, sanitation and health care access. The 14-year civil war in Liberia caused a breakdown in law enforcement which has disproportionately affected the poor.

Economy: Liberia is a low-income country that relies on foreign aid. Its major sectors are agriculture and mining which contribute to a majority of Liberia’s income. Despite being among the world’s poorest countries, Liberia possesses abundant natural wealth.
