Working with Feed The Hungry West Africa

Feed The Hungry West Africa

Allan Klayee

In the early 90’s Feed the Hungry worked in Liberia between the civil wars and connected with Allan Klayee at that time. FTH was involved in the relief of the people there and Dr. Sumrall spoke at an evangelism event which caused an increase in Christianity.

Allan’s partnership with FTH since then has helped fill a huge need in the nation of Liberia. His ministry has built a large platform that has allowed many people to be reached with the Gospel.

There are new opportunities appearing daily on places to feed and people to reach. Because of the growth and massive positive impact that Allan and Feed the Hungry has had on Liberia, many generations have come to know the Lord.

Long lasting economic instability and hardships are the main things Allan and his ministry constantly face. Liberia has one of the poorest economies in the world.
