Democratic Republic of the Congo: The survivors

21 August 2013

Decades of fighting in eastern DRC have had horrific consequences, including the widespread rape of women, men and children. Every year, the obstetric unit of Panzi Hospital, Bukavu, treats hundreds of women for cruel and brutal injuries. A woman from the eastern Kivus describes the shame and suffering she felt after she was attacked and raped at gunpoint on the roadside. (This film contains material that may be disturbing.)
