les Violences faites aux femmes nombreuses et dangereuses en RDC

une femme victime des violences domestiques en RDC

J'etais tres choquée quand j'ai vue cette femme qui a été frappée par son mari simplement parce que son mari le supsconé de sortir avec un autre home. De plus en plus des cas de violences domestiques sont enregistrées dans l'est de la Republique democratique du congo. Condamnée par la coutume et les traditions à garder silences , les femmes sont obligée de garder silence. Malheureusement jusque à quand garderons silence face aux violations de nos droits?
Aidprofen continuera à faire de son mieux pour que des tels cas soient punis devant la justice et que les femmes du congo jouissent de leurs droits

The Many Dangerous and Violent Acts Committed Against Women in the DRC

I was very shocked when I saw this woman who had been hurt by her husband simply because he suspected her of going out with another man. More and more cases of domestic violence are recorded everyday in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Sentenced to silence by customs and traditions, women are often forced to keep quiet. How much longer must we remain silent while our rights are violated?

Aidprofen will continue to do their best to ensure that cases such as these are brought to justice and punished, so that Congolese women can fully posses their rights.

Thank you for the work you do with Aidprofen to assist women in securing their rights to live free from violence. My heart goes out to this woman pictured here. I hope you are able to help her and that both women and men in your community see the value in the work you do. You are a force for good, dear Passy!

Chère Passy, Moi aussi,

Chère Passy,
Moi aussi, j’étais très choquée quand j’ai vu cette photo. C’est vraiment difficile de regarder. Il n’existe aucune justification pour la violence faite aux femmes. C’est pour ça que j’admire beaucoup le travail fait par les organisations comme Aidprofen. On doit travailler ensemble pour que vous n’ayez à vous taire plus longtemps!

En solidarité,
Pilar
