Suite aux différents évènements et à l’instabilité politique qui règne depuis quelques mois en Côte d’Ivoire, la région Est du Liberia s’est vue accueillir plus d’une centaine de milliers de réfugiés dans des camps ou dans les villages proches de la frontière. Ceux-ci sont surtout concentrés dans les 4 sub-divisions administratives : Nimba county, Grand Gedeh county, River Ghee county et Maryland county. Depuis quelques mois, le Programme Alimentaire Mondial s’occupe donc d’acheminer de la nourriture dans ces différents camps et villages.
