Greetings members, it is with deepest regret that I share this information with you. On Monday 17/09/2011 the FDLR attacked the village of wamiti and neighbouring villages in the zone of shambunda in the province of ngando zone of mwanga leaving 6 deaths and people escaping to the bushes. This is the serious situation we have here in the the East of Congo.
These people (insurgents) must return to their homes in Rwanda so that we can breathe a little and Congo can return to being this vast kind and courteous country. We are suffering from these violent attacks.

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.

Violence in eastern Congo

Dear Adele, What is happening is widely printed in International newspapers, so we aware of this murder and how men are getting away with it. Will the federal Government offer to move the people out of this area and resettle them elsewhere until things change in eastern Congo? Are there any NGO organizations who can help evacuate people? What ideas do you have about helping your neighbors avoid danger (like a village building one large building to house all the residents and having guards posted around the building at night)? I'd like to discuss your ideas if you can write back. I've been praying for all of you.

Adele, thank you for bringing

Adele, thank you for bringing this news to the WorldPulse community. You are right, this is a very serious situation. It must have been a frightening experience for the people of wamiti to feel so afraid in their own village. It sounds as though the people of wamiti are ready for peace. I hope you will be able to stay safe. My thoughts are with you.

Thank you for being strong

Dear Adele,
I am so sorry for the situation that the people in East Congo are being put in. This is very very very absurd and i am praying for peace in your country. Kindly provide more information on the situation there so that we can advice accordingly. Stay strong my sister and God bless you for the good work. Nice day

Violences.

Dear Adele,
Thank you for sharing your story with us. It is very sad to see that these acts of violence are occurring in your village. How often do these attacks occur? Do you have a local police or some form of protection agency? Perhaps the men and women in your village can get together to form an alliance or a group that can protect the village. Is this possible?

Kind Regards,

Aggression by insurgents

Dear Adele,

I am sorry to hear that attack and murder are still happening. What is in our newpapers is that there is a truse now and the President of Rwanda is being urged to recall all his military personnel. I deeply hope this will happen, so that peace in your area will allow a more normal life to resume. I am praying for you and all the people of eastern Congo. Much love is being sent your way.
William
