Sponsoring a Victim of Sexual Violence


Sponsor an older victim of sexual violence

North Kivu and Ituri, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, are areas of high insecurity where armed groups regularly attack civilians. Women, young and old, are exposed to sexual violence and access to medical and psychological support is extremely limited. Victims often remain silent and do not seek treatment because of the stigma. For over a dozen years our local partner, SOFEPADI, a women’s organization, has provided care and support to many victims of sexual violence in the region.  Your monthly sponsorship will help cover the basic daily needs of an older woman and improve her quality of life.

What Is the Impact of Your Donation?

  • Your monthly donation of $34.00 enables access to medical and psychological support which promotes a greater sense of stability. This, in turn, improves the quality of life for the victims and their families. Please give.
