VIOLENCE DES DROITS HUMAINS

Chers amis de la communauté world pulse bonjour!
Nous sommes ici malgré la situation d’insécurité et de guerre qui se passe dans notre pays le Congo,
La fois passé je vous parlé de la situation qui s'était passé à bunyakiri entre les militaires M23 et les militaires congolais,vraiment ce n’étais facile, hier à l"église nous étions avec une maman qui est venu de bunyakiri,elle nous a montrer comme quoi son mari et tous les enfants sont mort pendant la guerre de ces derniers,et que ce suite à cela qu'elle a une maladie mentale, elle est devenu folle,elle n'a rien retrouver comme objet de la maison et pas même un habit,elle est entrain de demander qu'on puisse l'aider partout ou elle passe,
c'est pour quoi nous continuons à vous envoyer nos cris en larme espérant que vous pouvez trouver solution à ce problème qui nous malmène entant que femmes congolaise,
Merci, bonne lecture et compréhension ,

Human rights violence

Dear friends of the World Pulse community: hello!
We are here despite the situation of insecurity and war that is happening in our country the Congo.
Last time I told you about the situation that occurred at Bunyakiri between the M23 military and the Congolese military. Really it’s not easy. Yesterday at church we were with a mother who came to Bunyakiri. She showed us how her husband and all their children died during the last war, and following that she had a mental illness and became crazy. She couldn’t even find household objects or clothes. She is currently asking everyone she runs into to help her. That is why we continue to send you our cries of desperate tears, so that you can find a solution to this problem that bullies the Congolese woman. Thank you. Happy reading and understanding.
