In the process of looking up V-Day  ( ) we discovered the amazing City of Joy and the V-World Farm, begun in DR Congo by Dr Denis Mukwege, Christine Schuler Deschryver  and Eve Ensler in 2011, with support from Unicef and many contributors world-wide,  to help women rape survivors in the DR Congo become community leaders – TURNING PAIN TO POWER.

Good to know that there is growing international awareness and support for raped and mutilated women in DR Congo, both from women world-wide, and good men.  It is still said to be the most dangerous place in the world for women.
