Liberian infrastructure fell into severe disrepair during a 14-year civil war, making it difficult for people to meet their basic needs for water and sanitation. Living Water Liberia began shortly after the war ended in 2004 to help communities access safe water and learn valuable hygiene and sanitation lessons, all while sharing the love of Christ.

In 2014, the nation was hit by what has now been termed the worst Ebola virus outbreak in history. National authorities in Liberia worked with the World Health Organization (WHO) and partners, including Living Water Liberia, to scale-up control measures. Over the next year, Living Water Liberia mobilized resources to work with other partners, particularly faith-based organizations on combating the Ebola virus.
