Violence Against the Sick and Unwell

Good health is the most valuable part of a human’s life. God gave us his life freely; consequently, each person must care for his life like the precious treasure it is. Those who are competent in the area of health protection must work to help those who need their assistance, for example the physically handicapped. In the DRC, sick and handicapped people are forgotten by society. IN FAMILIES: weak or handicapped children are seen as a burden because they require more care than healthy children—for example, expensive medicines, special diets, extra supervision that keeps parents from doing their work and activities. AT SCHOOL: the sick and handicapped are humiliated by their classmates, some of whom even mock their movements. IN HOSPITALS: the sick who can’t afford treatment are neglected by the staff, who fear they’ll lose money when the weak patients flee the hospital without paying their medical bill. Adults living with handicaps lead a life of begging when they could be caring for themselves and working a job their physical state allows. POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Training caretakers/mentors of the sick and physically, mentally, or psychologically handicapped. Creation of different centers for the disabled.

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.

Merci

Chère Michelline,

Ça crève le cœur de se rendre compte de la situation de ces personnes-là. Est-ce qu’il existe au moins quelques centres pour l’encadrement des gardiens des malades ? Est-ce que les handicapés peuvent suivre des cours aux centres communaux pour apprendre comment prendre soin d’eux-mêmes, ou pour trouver des postes de travail ? Si non, j’espère que des femmes courageuses comme vous dirigeront le mouvement pour l’affranchissement des handicapés et des malades.

Merci d’avoir contribué vos observations et vos suggestions à notre communauté. On vous écoute, comme toujours.

Solidairement,
LightMyWay
