We hope and pray that at the end of every dark tunnel there is light.....

The wars of the World always bring untold suffering to the innocent.

Millions of women are every year subjected to the atrocity of sexual violence in conflict.

The leaders of the World have, at last, heard their voices.

Love, truth and mercy

14/04/2013 23:10

When Nelson Mandela left prison after twenty-seven years and became South Africa’s first democratically elected president, he called upon his old friend, Desmond Tutu, to chair The Truth and Reconciliation Commission.  This commission was a series of hearings – some of them public – in which both victims and perpetrators gave testimony about their experiences and actions during apartheid.

At one of the hearings, a policeman, called van de Broek, told of how he and his fellow officers shot an eighteen-year-old youth, then burnt the body.  Eight years later they went back, took the father and forced his wife to watch as he was incinerated.  She was in court to hear this confession and was asked by the judge what she wanted.  She said she wanted van de Broek to go to the place where they had buried her husband’s body and gather up the dust so that she could give him a decent burial.  Van de Broek agreed. 

She then added a further request.  ‘Mr van de Broek took all my family away from me, and I still have a lot of love to give.  Twice a month I would like for him to come to the ghetto and spend a day with me so that I can be a mother to him.  And I would like Mr van de Broek to know that he is forgiven by God, and that I forgive him too.  I would like to embrace him so he can know that my forgiveness is real.’

Spontaneously, some in the courtroom began singing ‘Amazing Grace’ as the elderly woman made her way to the witness stand.  But van de Broek did not hear the hymn, he had fainted, overwhelmed.

Truth, love and mercy flowing together.

Stop violence against women

14/04/2013 21:56

These little girls have the right to safety, freedom from harm, healthy childhoods and love. Their innocence to be protected so they can grow into strong healthy women.

They are showing support for a UN campaign to stop sexual violence against women in conflicts.

The unseen, devastating epidemic of systematic sexual violence against women, voiceless and already traumatised by war, and conflict.

It must stop. Now.

 

This is Elizabeth's story....

As Elizabeth and her captors arrived at the militia camp, she realized that dozens of other girls had also been kidnapped. "When we got there we were so many," she said. "We were taken into the bush, when a big man came and took me."

Life with the Mayi Mayi, an ethnic milita in Kenya, was a nightmare of almost continuous abuse. "All they did was come and 'take' us often. They used to tie up the women and tie their husbands to trees then take us [the girls]," the 17-year-old told IRIN." I stayed with them for so long and it didn't matter any more who took me."

Elizabeth's ordeal happened in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), but it could well have been in Sierra Leone, Liberia or a variety of other countries. Wherever there is armed conflict, there are stories like hers, stories of rape, of trauma; stories of unimaginable horror, of girls and women who have been gang-raped, held indefinitely as sex-slaves, beaten, mutilated, killed. Sometimes the victims are in their 70s or 80s, sometimes they are younger women, or teenagers. Some are as young as six months old.

A study, published in June 2011 by the American Journal of Public Health, revealed that about 48 women are raped every hour in the Democratic Republic of Congo, totaling more than 1,100 women every day.

The hands of a surgeon at work.

During the Biafra conflict in Nigeria, a group of doctors left to go into a war zone and into the unknown. To serve. To heal. That caused a ripple effect that now numbers over 25,000 health professionals, logistics experts and adminstrative staff strong.

The power of a decision.

Inspirational.

Apart from what we say and hear, some languages are visually stunning. The craft of a sweeping line and form of a curve shape letters to enable communication, sounds that we hear as speech and dialects that we understand to represent culture .....beautiful.....yet the words are nothing without the meaning that resonates behind them......
