La republique democratique du congo

Car en Afrique une femme violée ne mérite plus l'amour de son mari et est déconsidérée par toute la société; L'impunité étant en vigueur en R;D;C; les exécuteurs de ces actes se promenant toujours en bonne sante et le gouvernement se chargent moins de ces femmes; Il faut donc pour les venir en aide; une organisation locale et internationale ayant un cœur charitable; Ces femmes violées dont la plus part d'elles souffrent du sida et d'autre par certaines maladies; nécessitent non seulement les soins ;mais aussi l'encadrement sur le plant morale ; éducatif et psychologique ;ce dernier encadrement étant parmi nos domaine ;Actuellement; ces femmes sont aidées par toutes ;mais seulement a 50 % et d'autres continuent a croupir dans la misère car délaissées par leur familles et autres ONG n'étant pas capable de venir a toutes en aide ;

2;LES ENFANTS DE LA RUE
En RDC la rue est devenue parent de multitudes d'enfants; ils choisissent désormais ce fameux parent soit car; ils ont perdu leurs parents dans la guerre; soit victimes des foyers séparés a cause de la violence ou carrément l'incapacité des certaines familles misérables vivant sans être capables de supporter encore une fois leurs enfants;

In Africa a woman who has been raped no longer merits the love of her husband and is treated as unworthy by society. Impunity is in full effect in DRC. Those who commit these acts walk along in good health and the government takes less responsibility for these women; It is necessary that these women receive assistance; a local or international organization with a charitable purpose; most of the women who are raped suffer from HIV and other illnesses; requiring not just care but also moral support; educational and psychological. The latter support is within our ability. Actually, these women are assisted by many, but only 50% [receive support] while the others continue to stagnate in misery because [they are] abandoned by their families and other NGOs aren't able to come to their assistance.

2. Street Children

In DRC the street has become parent to multitudes of children. They choose this now famous parent either because they have lost their parents in the war or they are victims of divided homes due to the violence or the almost complete incapacity of certain destitute families living without being able to take care of their children

Dear Micheline, Thank you for informing us about the situation of women in your country. It is so sad that women are raped and the rapists get away with it. What is so disgusting is just knowing that these men are not arrested and taken before the courts of law.You need to find more of these women so that they stand up and fight for their rights. We need the numbers to be able to advocate for them as well. Why we need these numbers is so that we can also put pressure on international organisations to provide medical services to those suffering from STDs like HIV/AIDS. These organisations like also help with the orphaned children who have made the street their home. Thank you for your strength and please bring out more of these stories so that we can help you advocate for women's rights better. Stay blessed nad be strong my sister.
God bless you
