African Restoration Village
48 women raped every hour in Congo...*
FACT Alliance is partnering with New Day Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo to work on the building a “Transitional Village” for victims of sexual violence and exploitation. If you are unaware of the tragic state of this country please read Derek's blog entry HERE. (Derek is out Director of International Initiatives. Derek and his wife Andrea were once stationed in Zaire [D.R. Congo] and were evacuated back in 1991)
FACT Alliance focuses on building or supporting safe houses, but the village concept is more suited to the African context. We are in the visionary phase but are working to generate the funds necessary to purchase the land.
