On Empowering Women through Art in South Sudan

Honna Eichler reflects on the ministry of Milcah Lalam of RECONCILE International in Sudan. They met during the 55th session of  Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations. Honna writes:

“With art there is no barrier.” These words concluded a brief interview I had with Milcah Lalam, a woman from South Sudan who provides psychosocial rehabilitation for communities within this newly formed country.

Milcah works through RECONCILE International, an organization that is attempting to pick up the pieces in Sudan after the recent civil war, which killed nearly 2 million people and devastated the country. The basic aim of RECONCILE is to “equip communities with knowledge and skills for peace-building.”
