Angel Care Pregnancy Center
Angel Care Pregnancy Center is a ministry of Mission Bethel that meets the dire needs of impoverished mothers in Liberia by providing counseling, baby supplies, prenatal medical care, infant care classes, and parent skills training. Liberia is ranked 10th for maternal mortality rates in the world. Liberian women desperately need access to quality prenatal and postnatal care to save the lives of mothers and infants. Angel Care has stepped into this medical services desert to provide quality care to a vulnerable community. Angel Care distributes clothing, blankets, diapers, baby wipes, and hygiene items to families.
Around 49 percent of Liberian women have experienced domestic violence in their homes, resulting in unhealthy and destructive habits of interaction within families. Angel Care’s parenting classes help mothers see and nurture the potential in their children instead of turning to anger. Women receive training from a professional counselor, pastor, teacher, and lawyer during these two-week courses. As families are given tools for healthy parenting, children’s lives are transformed, and women can work toward healing.
