The Democratic Republic of the Congo

The Democratic Repuplic of the Congo is an African country found at the center of Africa. It shares its borders with Zambia, Uganda, the Congo-Brazaville is the center of the African republic.

THE BEATUFY OF THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO

The beauty of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is due to a rich fauna and flora that attracts many international tourists. The east of our country is engorged with a large part of the richness like the good vegetation, minerals and animals like the okapi, mountain gorillas, hippopotamuses. This is why the east is the object of theater in many countries around the world, and some people desire to invest in the country or to exploit the east. All of this would not be a problem, but the biggest worry is that the majority of the country is suffering- by being victims of war, being handicapped in a profound poverty. And for me, as an educator the most jarring of cases are those of mothers who are victims of sexual violence and of the children of have become too many and crowd the street suffering due to poverty. Here, in detail, the development of each case I have analyzed:

THE WOMEN OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO ARE VICTIMES OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE

Like I said above, the case of women being victims of sexual violence has always been my preoccupation as a mother and an educator, even with my financial difficulties. In any case the violence is spread through wars that have become our neighbors and so it is inevitable as long as our country has all this richness. Every time there is war- women are submitted to sexual violence by the military and other negative forces such as the ex- Rwandan army. Women are forced to accept this type of act in exchange for their life. Women are not only shell shocked by these violent acts but also get sexually transmitted diseases and some are even rejected by their husbands.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Thank you

Thank you, Michelline, for telling us about the situation in your country and the consequences the war has for the women in your community. I would be very interested to find out more about your work with abused women. I was wondering if you could tell us a little bit more about that. Do you work with an organization? What kind of activities do you do?

Thank you for sharing

Michelline,

Thank you for sharing. It is horrible to know that any woman has to go through something like that. Are there resources in your area to help these women? I know I am far away but if there is anything I can help you with please let me know.

Thank you again,

Sally
