From Rape and Shame to Resilience and Pride:

Program Provides Hope to Survivor in War-torn Democratic Republic of Congo

ICRW - Jennifer McCleary-Sills

 

I met Espérance – whose name means ‘hope' in French – in Ituri District, a conflict-affected region of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). I was there carrying out an evaluation of programs supported by the Trust Fund for Victims (TFV), an international body established by the Rome Statute to address the harm resulting from crimes under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court. Our evaluation report, summarizing what we found, has just been released.

Through local implementing partners, the TFV provides reparations and assistance to support the physical, psychological, and economic needs of victims of war crimes and crimes against humanity.  Espérance is one of nearly 110,000 women, men, and children, who have received life-changing assistance through the TFV.

 

Now her eyes meet mine, holding them to make sure I am really listening to what she's about to say.
