I Am Against War

Because of war I became a widow and my children orphans. My husband died when he was 32 years .
He worked in the teaching field.
In 1996 everything stopped and life was very difficult.
After the war he went into the bush to look for means and he was dead.

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.

La guerre est cruelle

Bonjour Mme Kabene
C'est avec une grande tristesse que j'ai lu votre histoire.
ça confirme que la guerre n'est pas une bonne moyen de résoudre les problèmes.

Mes condoléances et beaucoup du courage

I'm very sorry for the loss of your husband, Kabene.
I am also against war.
Stay strong,

Thank you for sharing...

Dear Kabene,
Thank you for sharing your story. I cannot begin to imagine the pain you're feeling. I'm very sorry for your loss. War is senseless and cruel and I am against it as well. Fighting has never led to anything good.

I hope you find the time to let yourself fall apart. Let others hold you from time to time as you recover your strength.

All the best to you,

Violeta
