Did you know…..that CAFOD is a member of the ‘We Will Speak Out’ Coalition – a group of Christian organisations who organised a Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict? It’s taking place in London this week, with over 100 countries, 900 experts, survivors, Faith leaders, and International organisations from across the world sharing a commitment to end sexual violence in conflict. CAFOD is present through partner Therese Mapenzi from the Democratic Republic of Congo, who is addressing the summit, telling of her work to help rape survivors to overcome the trauma of their experiences.

Thank you for your support in working to create a powerful voice for change and justice.
