Shannon’s heart was forever changed in 2016 on her first trip to Benin with ORR. She was so inspired by what ORR was doing for the children and communities in the area, that she brought her husband back with her the next year. She is a nurse by training, a mother of 3 grown children, and has worked in children’s ministries for the past 30 years.
Born and raised in Nahant, Massachusetts, Stephen has spent the last 3 years living and working in Liberia. After graduating from George Washington University with a Bachelors in Political Science, Stephen joined the Peace Corps working as a high school math and science teacher in Grand Cape Mount County, Liberia. Following his two year service, Stephen decided to extend for a third year working as the Media Coordinator for Peace Corps Liberia. Stephen has a love for all things Liberia from the spicy “pepe” food to Liberian lappa fashion (see photo). Stephen is fluent in the local dialect of Liberian “Colloqual” and the Vai tribal language. As the Country Representative, he is responsible for managing all programs in Liberia, working on government committees to help build improve child protection in Liberia and creating sustainable partnerships with local organizations to end child trafficking and abuse.
Raised in a small farming and lumber community in Oregon, Sheryl has been a city-dweller for the past 34 years. First living in Los Angeles and now Seattle (Kent) with her husband of 36 years, where they raised their three, now grown children, has provided many opportunities to put her servant’s heart to work. Having worked as an Executive Assistant for most of her adult life, she feels most valuable when contributing to an organization that makes a difference in the lives of those who find themselves at risk.
For twelve years, Sheryl provided administrative support to the Executive Director and as a Development Coordinator for non-profit organizations whose focus was to free men and women from addiction and homelessness. “It’s my belief that my role to serve those who have vision and passion, helping them do what they’ve been called to do, regardless if they are the President, Executive Director, volunteer or financial donor.” At Orphan Relief and Rescue, she is looking forward to building relationships with the people that make the work that they do, possible.
To protect the identity of our African Staff, we are not able to list their names. We have a total of 14 African staff members in Liberia and Benin combined.
