Liberia: helping, evaluating and stabilising

29/09/2003 - The political situation in Liberia is returning step by step to normality, there is still fighting in some regions. SOS Children's Village Juah Town has been completely looted, ECOMOG soldiers are to guard the facilities until calm has returned to Buchanan. Around 1,200 refugees are still being looked after in SOS Children's Village Monrovia, the SOS Emergency Aid Clinic has been fully operational for a month and has treated more than 1,500 patients.
