VISITING THE WIDOWS OF THE SOLDIERS DIED DURING THE WAR

English translation by community member HARMONY.

Our movement “Africa Reconciled” visited the widows of the soldiers of the Katindo Camp.

This meeting was both pleasant and unpleasant. Pleasant because we spent a good time with them and we discovered their abilities to support their families

Unpleasant because these women and their families are facing a lot of difficulties and are going through unconceivable suffering. These widows whose husbands were killed during the war need to start activities that generate incomes/money to provide for their needs and that of their families. On our arrival, we were surprised to see how these widows have developed small income generating activities. During our discussion with these widows, tears ran on our eyes because a lot of things have to be done. They wished that “Africa Reconciled” try and help in:

- Providing them tarpaulin to cover their small houses

- Opening a center for the elimination of illiteracy

- Starting workshop for cutting and sewing

- Getting mattresses to sleep on

- Finding dome clothes for their children and themselves.

Please note that since the war in DRC, the widows of the soldiers do not have any assistance from the government. The needs are expressed day after day and the government does not have any strategy to help this category of the population which is making sacrifices for the country. We believe that the assistance to these widows is of great necessity, especially now that the impact of our visit gave hope and joy to these families.

Chère Pascalmc,

C'est toujours les femmes et les enfants qui payent le prix le plus fort des guerres mais d'avoir des soeurs et amis comme vous avec Africa Reconciled qui leur redonnent espoir. Merci pour votre engagement et pour vos actions. Vous n'êtes pas seules!
