Andy and Teresa Perkins - Bestwa
Andy first traveled to Liberia in 1998 to help with a pastor's conference. His passion for the people of Liberia is what drove him to found BESTWA to meet the practical needs of the people who live there. The mission of BESTWA is to build Liberia's future-one child at a time. Liberia is at a crossroads. A land destroyed by civil war and ravaged by poverty and disease, but THERE IS HOPE. BESTWA offers a feeding program which provides over 900 children with medical care, the love of Jesus and a nutritious daily meal they can depend on. They also offer the opportunity for future leadership by putting children in school, many for the first time. Their college scholarship program takes the next step by enabling the best and brightest to attend college. Additionally, they are working to complete a birthing clinic that will provide prenatal care, birth services and training for midwives.
