MONROVIA, LIBERIA—My ears perked up when nurse Denise Maxwell, Luke Society ministry director in Monrovia, Liberia, said that there had been a number of triplet births over the past few years.
My wife and I know some of the joys and challenges of having triplets as ours are now 12 years old. Yet, what we experienced was nothing like the stories Denise was telling.
Mothers in Liberia often do not have the ability to provide good prenatal care, so oftentimes one or more of the babies will not survive the birth. In addition, many of the mothers are teenagers whose families shame them for having sex before marriage, causing the young mothers-to-be to avoid quality care.
From the executive director

I hope this website helps you understand clearly the mission of the Luke Society, and gives you a glimpse of how the Kingdom of God is expanding through the work of our ministry partners."
