VIOLENCES DE DROITS HUMAINS EN RDC (suite)

DEVELOPPEMENT
1) Les premières élections démocratique ce sont déroulées depuis 2006 et la constutition signer à tous les congolais devait accompagnée les élus pour la bonne gouvernance.
Helas! la plupart des lois votés pour duper les pauvres congolais sont restés dans les tiroirs des autorités. La population continue acroupur dans des misères et menent une vie inhumaine sur tous les plans.
Ex: L'enfant qui est l'avenir du pays est abandoné dans son triste sort. Certains sont malnutris depuis les bas âges parce que la mère alaitante les laisent toute la journée sous les garde de leur soeur qui n'est pas capable de l'encadrer pendant l'absence de la mère qui passe toute la journée dans l'activité génératrice de revenues pour assurer la survie de la famille dont le père n'a pas d'emploi malgré son niveau intellectuel.
Les adolescents dont les parents sont incapables de payer leurs études se livrent aux travaux lourds(transports de lourds fardeaux depassant leurs poids, petit maçon, travaux domestiques, enrolement dans l'armée ou milices).
Les femmes sont violées par les bandes armées et repudiées par leurs maris, contestées par la société, humiliées devant leurs enfants, exopsées dans plusieurs maladies dont le SIDA et autres infections utérines traumatisées sans compter d'autres conséquences nefastes. Les hommes qui sont soumis au condition de mepris devant ces boulot quiviolent leurs femmes et leurs filles.

Human Rights Abuse in the DRC
DEVELOPMENT
1) The first democratic elections were held this since 2006 and the constitution signed by all Congolese had to guide politicians for good governance.
Unfortunately most laws voted to dupe the poor Congolese have remained in the drawers of the authorities. The population continues groan in misery and lead an inhumane life at all levels.

Ex: The child who is the country's future is forsaken to his sad fate. Some are malnourished from young ages because the breastfeeding mother leave them for the whole day in the care of their sister, who is not able to take care of him in the absence of the mother who spends all day in an income generating activity to ensure the survival a family whose father has no job despite his intellectual level.

Teenagers whose parents are unable to pay for their education indulge in heavy work (transportation of heavy loads exceeding their weight, small builder, housework, enlistment into the army or militia).

Women are raped by armed gangs and repudiated by their husbands, contested the by society, humiliated in front of their children, exposed to several diseases such as AIDS and other uterine infections without mentioning the other adverse consequences.
Men submit to the shameful requirements of those who rape their wives and daughters.

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.

LE RDC VA TENIR

Ma Rosa,
Comme, j'ai tantot dis, toute la communaute international se tournent vers le RDC cherchant a ameliorer les choses dans le RDC. Il faut seulement que les femmes Congolaises se preparent pour le changement positif qui va se produit dans votre nation.

Apres la tempete, c'est la paix.

Quand la paix va revenir, le viol va dispparaitre. La souffrance va fuire. La guerre sera le passe.

(Excusez moi, mon clavier est en anglais)

Preparez vous pour une abondance mais souvenez vous de moi

Demain est plus rassurant q'aujourd'hui

Lubala- Thank you for sharing

Lubala-
Thank you for sharing these testimonies. We hear about these horrific acts that are happening everywhere and even though I know it happens, it's still so hard to believe that this is tolerated in this day and age. I'm so glad that people like you have the courage to speak out on behalf of these women and children who do not have a voice. Hopefully, together, we can be their voice for change...now...

Please Continue To Speak Out!

Dear Lubala Rosalie,

The information you have shared in your testimony is crucial for the world to hear. The unjust hardships experienced by children you describe are particularly wrenching, and you are doing a brave and good thing in writing the truth.

You have already taken a strong, positive step forward in the name of your people by sharing this story on World Pulse. Please continue speaking out, sharing possible solutions, too, as you move forward. Your voice will make a difference to those children who are deprived of all that they should have and those wives whose husbands do not take a stand against cruel, antiquated practices.

Thank you, Lubala, and may you find moments of peace and joy and bring them to others.

- Sarah

I am sorry to hear about the Constitution that doesn't reflect what people deserve. Constitution is a social contract between people and the government. I hope that it will get amended in the future because Constitution influences the people who supposedly enact it. The only way out that I see here is to keep the legislative effort. Social stereotypes and prejudices impact our everyday lives, so let us spread the knowledge about the present state of affairs. These are hard times and we have to be brave. Dear Lubala, thank you for raising your voice and sharing this valuable piece of information with us!
