Witness to Rape in Congo: "What is the future when the heart of the community is broken?"

http://www.opednews.com/articles/...eorgianne-Nienabe-080806-388.html

Excerpt:

I was working in Congo since 2004 as trauma counselor, and from my activities with women victims of rape, did my best to help women, girls, boys, and men cope with the trauma they faced due to the wars and assaults.

I found many psychological wounds in them but also I learned from them to be with hope myself. To share what I saw is a way to cope with the flashbacks that come to me as a result of what I saw and what I heard. A lot of countries around the world are at war, but what's going on in Congo is something different -- it is a war with the aim to destroy all of society by destroying women and girls.

Please post this story to Care2.

Notice that the UN Peacekeepers are not one of the responsible groups named.

Note also how totally insane it would be to introduce a brothel or other recreational facitilities into such an environment.

They need food, medical help, and sanctuary. Introducing more combatants to the area will just increase the violence. There needs to be a boycott of the responsible corporations and governments because they're doing this for profit and loss of profit is the only thing that will stop them.
