The healing power of words: a listening house in Eastern Congo

16-07-2009 Film

Every day women are raped in Eastern Congo. They suffer not only physical pain but also emotional trauma and the fear of rejection. The ICRC supports over 30 counselling centres in North and South Kivu, where victims of rape meet compassionate listeners and find support as they talk about their suffering.
