INSECURITE A L'EST DE LA R.D.C.

Aujourd'hui nous vivons dans une période de guerre qui nous amène à une crise économique causée par le pillage accompagné par de viol de femmes prises comme butins de guerre. Nous observons une forte perte des vies humaines.
Nous femmes demandons à tous les détenteurs de pouvoir de chercher la solution pour une paix durable à l'Est du pays en particulier et en R.C.D en général.

Insecurity in Eastern DRC

Today we are living in a time of war which has brought us to economic crisis, caused by pillage and the rape of women considered as spoils of war. We are experiencing huge losses of human life.

We women appeal all those in power to search for a solution for lasting peace in the eastern part of the country in particular, and in all of the DRC in general.

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.

A votre avis, quelle est une solution possible pour une paix durable ? Comment est-ce que ces tragédies vous touchent personnellement ? Je vous implore de continuer à partager avec cette communauté – nous vous écoutons.

Chaleureusement,
