Congo


"We Congolese women, we are doing what we can to help each other.Women here have long felt neglected-but we hope this feeling will one day be over."
(Testimony of a Congolese woman)


-- Stephanie Hanes, "Life After Rape in Congo", Christian Science Monitor, April 25, 2007
"I was raped by them in front of my husband. They held him down while they did it. I was released afterwards because my husband and children pleaded with them, and cried saying "They will kill maman." I was raped by more than three men. I cannot remember the exact number because I lost consciousness. Afterwards a neighbor helped me, because I was bleeding. She boiled water and some herbs for me."
(Human Rights Watch interview, Bukavu, October 16, 2003)



-- Human Rights Watch "Seeking Justice: The Prosecution of Sexual Violence in the Congo War" Vol. 17, No. 1(A) (2005)
"I was raped by seven child combatants, who were aged between fifteen and sixteen years old, on the way to Kailahun. I was raped in my vagina and anally. Other rebels and also civilians saw me being raped but the civilians were too afraid to protect me...Since my rape, I have only experienced irregular periods and belly is always swollen like I am pregnant."
(Human Rights Watch interview, Lebanese Camp, March 2, 2002.)
