Hello Ladies! I am a Congolese girl from South-Kivu, precisely from Bukavu. This is our big problem: to find work, the boss makes you first have sexual relations before you start the job. As I speak to you I have already missed work three times because of this problem. We are asking for help as women, not commodities. Thank you.

Mon Dieu!

C'est avec horreur que je lis ton mesage ce matin Bayo.
C'est une situation horrifique que tu dois endurer.
Je comprend tout a fait pourquoi tu ne veux pas aller travailler. C'est une insulte faites a toutes les femmes par ton parton qui te considere comme de la marchandise!
Que se passera t'il si tu ne vas pas travailler?
Tu as tout mon soutient!
