How long Women of DRC?
My sisters, we are suffering so much! We now need Peace in our country. Listen to this short story:
"If there was peace, this we would not have happened," said Kasoke Kabunga. Like thousands of other women in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC,), Kasoke and her daughter were raped by armed militiamen. Her daughter died, Kasoke survived but contracted HIV / AIDS.
Rape is used in the war as a weapon." The UN estimates confirm the prevalence of this practice. The Deputy Secretary General of the UN operations peacekeeping, Jean-Marie Guéhenno said in October 2006 that 12,000 women and girls were raped during the previous six months alone.
In 2004-2005, the UN and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) estimated that up to 100,000 women were raped in all the eastern provinces of the DRC.
