Global Midwifery

Please Pray for theWomen

My heart broke last night when I read this report: http://www.newsmeat.com/news/meat.php?articleId=82819607&channelId=2951&buyerId=newsmeatcom&buid=3281

It seems the rapes of women, young girls and boys in the Congo by the armies present there are not limited to North Kivu.  Uvira, a town in South Kivu was specifically mentioned.  Some of our women are from Uvira.  And Nayngezi lies between Uvira and North Kivu.

I am waiting to hear from anyone about the extent of the damages, to ensure my friends are all safe. I want to know the midwives are actively helping the women. But I must wait patiently for Flory or Georgette to have access to the internet.

Please be praying with me for these women.
