il ya beaucoup d'enfants aujourd'hui que les sida à rendus orphelins il ya les parents d'un enfant qui sont morts du sida et le père et la mère,est l'enfant là étaient encore petite.bien que les texts montraient que l'enfant elle même n'étaient pas infectée par le V.I.H et n'avait pas les sida, beaucoup avaient peur d'etre contaminés par elle.
elle n'avait pas d'amis et on se moquait d'elle.la plus part des gens où vit cette enfant là sont chômeurs.beaucoup sont infectés par les V.I.H et meurent en laissant des orphelins.
les violations de droits de la femmes sont fréquentes.

Orphaned children who suffer from HIV/AIDS

There are many children today that have become orphans because both of their parents have died of AIDS while the child was still young. Even though tests showed that the child was not infected by HIV and did not have AIDS, many were afraid of being infected by her.
She did not have any friends and people made fun of her. Most of the people where this child lives are unemployed. Many are infected by HIV and they die and leave more orphans.
There are frequent violations of women’s rights.
I would like to see the officials work for women’s rights.
Here we talk about what is important for us.
Girls are not secure. We are mistreated and raped, and we must get together with you to see how to combat rape here in the Congo.
Thank you,
Betty

J'ai traduit votre journal

Bonjour, Betty

J'ai traduit votre journal en anglais. C'est une histoire triste, la situation des femmes dans la RDC. Les pauvres orphelines. Y'en a-t'il beaucoup d'elles? Ce que vous écrivez est très important pour la connaissance du monde.
Il faut que les responsables fassent quelque chose pour aider à ces jeunes filles.
