Lutheran Development Service, Liberia (LDS-Liberia)

The Lutheran Development Service in Liberia (LDS – Liberia) is a Lutheran non-governmental organization that was established in January 2002. It is the development arm of the Lutheran Church in Liberia with the responsibilities to provide diaconal services to people in an impartial way. In 2010, LDS took over the activities of the Lutheran World Federation/Department for World Service, Liberia programme (LWF/DWS – Liberia).

LDS aims to positively contribute to peaceful, sustainable communities in Liberia through provision of high quality rights-based development, empowerment and relief programmes.
