W

hile on a mission trip to Liberia in early 2008, Daryl
Roberts visited an orphanage on a tiny hill.
"It was there that my heart was broken and the
trajectory of my life was changed forever," Roberts says. "There
were over 60 children living in horrific conditions. On that little
hill, I witnessed a place where heaven and earth came together.
I felt a calm, and then and there, I knew the care of these children had been placed in my hands."
While he was still in Africa, his wife, Chrissy, began
collecting food, clothing and other necessities back home in
Cartersville. The couple recruited dozens of friends and
associates to help them and began planning follow-up trips to
distribute supplies and provide services for those in need.
"The last 12 years have been a challenging but joyous
journey," he says. "For years, we called our organization Orphan
Aid, Liberia, but after expanding our reach and scope, we
recently renamed our organization LIVE2540."
The group's new name is a reference to the Bible verse
Matthew 25:40, in which Jesus speaks of caring for those in
need-the heart of LIVE2540's mission.
LIVE2540 has distributed more than 5 million meals in
Liberia and the Philippines; fed hundreds of babies each week;
helped construct schools, dorms and chicken houses; provided

much-needed malaria treatments; worked to deworm thousands
of children and adults; and provided hundreds of scholarships for
children to attend school-many at the university level. LIVE2540
is distributing solar-powered audio Bibles and implementing
anti-trafficking initiatives.
Roberts just returned from his 33rd trip to Liberia. "The
masses will be fed. The sick will find care. Hope will be restored.
They will know they are loved and have not been forgotten,"
he says.
LIVE2540's fair-trade shop in downtown Cartersville offers
crafts, baskets and jewelry made by African artisans. It also offers
LIVE2540's signature line of "LOVE." apparel, a popular design in
which the "O" is replaced by the shape of the African continent.
They've sold more than 50,000 shirts through their store and at
bestshirtonearth.com. Each shirt sold provides 36 meals to a
child in need.
"For our work to be sustained, as well as to grow, God has
called on you to be the answer," Roberts says. "You can be a
champion in their corner. Please join us."
