6 personne tuées; 4 femmes violées, et 7 femmes emportées dans la foret , pillage des bétails Incendies des 27 maisons.
La population est dépourvue de tous les biens.

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.

hello nita, these armed men

hello nita, these armed men soldiers or Rebels, shame on them,
i wonder why they ie soldiers and rebels dont leave out civilians a lone
i have to note that where violence is, civilians more women and other vulnerable groups are affected most.
so they come and do a ll you mentioned, do they never think if the reverse were to happen to them,
i can not offer much except to pray that the situation is resolved so all concerned can go back to their normal lives.
Mean time finding secure places ... move out especially women and children.
Now why the hell would the burn the houses too? that is so foolish of any thinking person.

lets only hope for the best

Thank you for sharing your story. It is heartbreaking and I cannot believe that the violence against women continues. What happened to the women who were taken into the forest? Are these men from the Congo military who are raping their own women?

Kind Regards,
