Fatuma rebuilt her life after suffering unimaginable violence during the Rwandan genocide.
“It was the start of the war when they killed my husband by machete. When they had finished, they turned to me. They told me to choose: either have sex with us or we abort your child. [I said] God is the one who can do everything, so whatever you'll do is what is supposed to happen."
More about us
One in three women experience violence during their lifetime, and in countries affected by conflict women are 50% more likely to experience domestic violence. Since the start of the pandemic, this violence has intensified. Together, we can change this. Sign up to get your free 16 Days of Activism Calendar and get ready to take action.
