This CC consists of trained homeopathic/holistic staff who assist with the treatment of cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other diseases for the poor in their community. They also provides free weekly homeopathy/holistic trainings and counseling on health.
We help run a primary school in Costa Do Sol where several hundred poor children study. We managed to register the school so that text books and the teachers' salaries will be paid by the government. There are no more than 10 active members of our CC, yet we are of diverse religious backgrounds and have been able to join forces and work as one. We study the principles of URI in small groups to become better acquainted with one another and adept at working alongside each other.
Our chapter focuses on helping females with disabilities. In addition, we hold awareness activities to teach religious tolerance, providing tools to create a peaceful environment through acceptance of one another regardless of religious beliefs. We encourage all grassroots religious-oriented women's movements in war-torn Liberia to take action. We want to engage in meaningful dialogue, mutual cooperation and create a nonviolent approach to unnecessary religious and man-made conflicts. We console the victims of civil war, visit the sick and elderly, comfort the widows and give hope to those who feel hopeless. We want to serve as a vehicle between the Zoes and the Boedios and be one of the major forerunners of social justice throughout Liberia. We want to create awareness of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, offer care to women living with the virus, and prevent female genital mutilation.
