VIOLENCES FAITES AUX FEMMES

Ici chez nous c'est extraordinaire! ne cesse jamais de prier sur la population congolaise car elle souffre beaucoup.
imaginez - vous, quand on peut arriver à faire la chirurgie d'une mère qui n'est encore au point d'accoucher, et une fois que l'enfant qui sorte de son ventre soit une fillette, on la viole après on le pend. Quel genre d'inhumain que l'être humain peut arriver à faire pour l'autre!
Anuarite!

English translation by PulseWire member Celya

Here in our homes it is extraordinary! Please don’t ever stop praying for the Congolese population because it suffers so much.
Imagine being at the point of giving surgery to a woman who is not yet ready to give birth. Once she finds out that the baby coming from her womb is a little girl she is raped and hung. Can you imagine, when one can reach the point of making surgery on a mother who has not yet reached the point of giving birth and once one finds out that the baby coming from her womb is a small girl she get raped and then hanged? How inhuman are people who can do this to one another!

N'arretez pas de prier.
Des croyances mystiques qui menent a des actes de folie.

C'est incroyable

Chère Anuarite,

Un jour la justice vaincra et les droits seront respectés. Je t'encourage à partager ce qui se passe dans ton entourage. Ne te décourage pas. Etre une femme et une fille est une bénédiction même si en RDC ce n'est pas le cas.

Courage,

Cecile
