The world of free violence

Tino
Posted April 3, 2019 from Democratic Republic of the Congo

What do we understand from it : we consider it as a world without the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against oneself, another person or against a group or a community, which either results in or has high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, maldevelopment or deprivation. In our African society widows have suffer a lot from the death of their husbands and for most scenario  once the husband passed away, his family come to disturb the windows by taking away their kids or taking away the propriety the husband left to his children and wife and that always create violence in the family ,that come in the disadvantage of widows i and they do suffer a lot from that, in  most case widows lose their children and everything the late husband left to the husbands family, I have been a witness of that scenario. 

As buene hope foundation we try to address those issue by:

Improving on their (widows) right and rebuild live through a series of transformative program which enrichment opportunities that mature self-expression loss and grief sharing that stimulate positive growth and address emotional and cultural barrier for them

Also we are in partnership with (laws organization that deal with people right) which we have lawyer that can defend those widows right and make sure they get it. 

For the case of orphans :most of kid that turn out in the future to be thief or people that bring violence to our society  a quiet number are orphan or kid who were been chase by their family then with time they become street kid and as they grow old some become thief etc. ..

We  are address that issue take those kid away from where they are and but them in better place because we believe in β€˜β€™ rescue kid or orphan, raise him into a future leader and in future he  will change our society and nation for the better’’.

So far so good we have more than 256 widows in rural areas of Congo like (Minova, IBindja and MUDJA) and 354 orphans in Congo and Kampala.

Hi Tino,
This is such important work. It is through World Pulse that I have learned that women are working in many countries to bring rights to women who are not or no longer married, and also to children who are orphans. Congratulations on all that is happening through buene hope.

Sister Tino, this is a very touching story especially when in it involves innocent kids and widows, these are two human kinds which needs support, protection, love and care and the world could be a better place if women and children were our 1st priority in making sure they are sheltered, fed and kids at school. Lets voice this out and stand together to fight this kind of treatment.
