    October ACTION ALERT

    Stop Raping Our Greatest Resource

    Time Frame: 1 Month

    Plan of Action:
    Contribute financial and supply support towards Highlighting the issue of violence against women and girls in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

    Purpose of Action:
    Since 1996, sexual violence against women and children in the eastern part of the DRC has been used to torture and humiliate women and girls and destroy families. UNICEF estimates that hundreds of thousands of women and girls have been raped since the conflict began in DRC. In addition to the severe psychological impact, sexual violence leaves many survivors with genital lesions, traumatic fistulae and other physical wounds, as well as unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

    “Stop Raping Our Greatest Resource, Power To The Women And Girls Of The Democratic Republic Of Congo” is being initiated by the women of Eastern DRC, V-Day and UNICEF on behalf of UN Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict. The campaign calls for an end to the violence and to impunity for those who commit these atrocities.
