Thank you

Juslene,
Thank you for sharing the news from the Congo. I'm saddened to hear the atrocities happening, but grateful that you are here to give voice to the victims. Please stay strong and stay safe! My prayers are with you.

Hi Juslene,
Thank you for sharing our story with us. It is so sad what you have experienced and may things get better. Why are they killing innocent people? is this a tribal related murder?

Kind Regards,
Bina Patel
