WOMENS POWER IN FOCUS DURING A LUNCH MEETING WITH DENIS MUKWEGE
I had the privilege to, together with other business owners, listen to Dr. Mukwege at a lunch seminar in December 2013. Dr. Mukwege described how the strength and power that the women in his country conveys is an important reason that he can continue his work and refuses to give up.
He told of the strength that he repeatedly encounter in women, who are victims of brutal rapes.
That's what keeps me going. Women have so much capacity to show love and care, to fight and organize theselves.
RADIO INTERVIEW WITH DENIS MUKWEGE
I met dr. Denis Mukwege during a summer week 2015 when working with sending radio. I asked Mukwege what we, as simple people, can do to help. More than giving an economic contribution to the work in DR Congo.
Share, be a voice for the forgotten children and women in Africa. Don't ever be silent in the fight against evil.
