Violence
In Walungu Territory in Southern Kivu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, an 18-year-old girl was raped by her father while she slept. The girl realized it was her dad beside her when she started to sign.

The mother, who was absent because she was out working in the fields, learned this sad news and asked herself whether she should stay with her husband or leave him at a time when it would be difficult for her to raise five kids alone without income.

Merci

Chère Sandra,

Quelle histoire triste. Il est très compréhensible que la mère soit obligée de rester chez son mari, vu que les enfants dépendent de la mère et qu'elle dépend à son propre tour du mari. Cependant on prie pour le courage de la fille autant que pour celui de la mère. J’espère que lorsque les enfants grandissent et s’en vont, ces femmes trouveront la justice et recueilleront les fruits de leur patience et leur force.

Nous vous écoutons, mon amie.
