MULTIMEDIA and VIDEO: Mwavita, Born at time of War

Goma, the principal city of North Kivu province, has been sadly called the “rape capital of the world”: 15 thousand women are raped every year, an average of one every 30 minutes. After the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict that took place in London in 2014, the world has turned its back on rapes victims in Congo. This short documentary wants to bring this endless tragedy back into the spotlight through the stories of the victims and through the testimony of the people who give medical and psychological support to these women.
