Bernadette Munihire’s life was changed forever in 2003, when a rebel group attacked her village in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Now she has benefited from a partnership program between World Vision and Heal Africa that provides help and support to women who have suffered from sexual violence. She has learned how to sew, cultivate mushrooms and has received both psycho-social and medical support. She is now better equipped to raise her nine children.

On this International Day of the Eliminition of Violence Against Women, let’s stand up together in unity with women who have experienced violence in their life. Let’s pray for women who are experiencing violence today.
