Congo travel-study seminar – Reflection 2

North Kivu Province and Kyeshero Hospital

On Thursday our group, accompanied by Rev. Berthe Nzeba, got a snapshot of the extensive work that is being done in the North Kivu Province through the Eglise du Christ au Congo (the Church of Christ in the Congo or ECC) to support the survivors of rape.  Rev. Nzeba, based in Kinshasa, is the General Secretary of the ECC’s Department of Women and Families. The ECC is comprised of more than 60 Protestant denominations in the Congo, and its member churches play a vital role in the social fabric of the country.  

Read the original post to learn how women are organizing to inform their communities about incidents of rape and about the work of the Kyeshero Hospital.
