What Betty and her sisters had been trough and her current situation is very sad and regretful. This situation is call for an action to stop violence against women and to break this believe that girls are less than boys. We are all equal and it's together men and women that we can build a peaceful world. Thank you for sharing this story of Betty. I believe there hundred of thousands in this situation and we cannot afford to remain silent.
Our thoughts and prayers go to Betty and to all the girls and women suffering in Congo. We also encourage Maman Shujaa for all the efforts it's making to help Betty and to stop violence against women.
