BENEFITING: HEAL AFRICA
These women are victims of endless violence.
HEAL Africa is working to build and support new communities of women in Africa who are empowered socially, physically, spiritually, and economically to create a new social fabric in communities that are torn apart by conflict.
They are becoming a force for change in a different future for the Congo. In a fragmented postwar society, with many women living on their own, the traditional roles and structures have changed. Women are experiencing new responsibilities and are now recognizing that they have assumed new roles. This has led some groups of women to challenge a system they may never before have questioned. It has brought women together who have suffered the same issues: widowhood, rape, the need to support their children alone.
Now they are discovering the strength they have in working together.
My goal in creating this project is to bring friends together to support these brave women. Please give what you can to support HEAL Africa. No pressure.....but I promise it will make you feel good all over!!! :)
