Future Projects

We'd like to present a few projects that CARD is passionate about and would like to implement in the near future. Aim would be to improve the living conditions of the people. We want improve sanitation, education and generally create better living conditions leading towards a sustainable way of life.

 

West Point

Water well in West PointWest point is located in down town Monrovia near the seaside. It has a population of over 75.000 people living in appalling conditions. There is no sanitation so the most of the area is infested with and smelling of faeces and urine, the beach is used as a toilet. Most of the houses are merely shacks built from whatever people find. Water is provided for by only a few wells, the water not being safe. Pools of raw sewage are a breeding ground for mosquitoes and malaria is a serious problem.

Rape of women and even children is common and frequently parents are taking money from the rapist of their child and are quiet about it. Many women have taken to prostitution as a way to support themselves. Gender-based violence is common. The use of drugs like heroine and cocaine, even by children, makes matters even worse.
