Grand Gedeh County, Liberia
This county is located in eastern Liberia and borders the Ivory Coast. Our organization’s African operations are administered from the county capital of Zwedru. Due to the shared border with the Ivory Coast, Grand Gedeh County absorbed the majority of the war refugees fleeing the 2011 conflict. The integration of those refugees into Liberian villages has created additional challenges within a region that is seeking to recover from a fourteen-year civil war.
