Portland's 2010 Run for Congo Women
On June 26, 2010, I will be running a 5K with some friends to help raise money and awareness for the women of Congo. Please consider donating - the world needs to know what is happening in the Congo. "Civilians are left to fend for themselves against brutal attacks, torture, looting, rape and murder, as well as deprivation of the most basic conditions necessary for life. Women in the Congo carry the heaviest of burdens. They have been gang raped. Tortured. Watched their husbands and children murdered in front of them. Forced to flee their homes. Many have watched two, four, even seven children die from preventable illnesses." Please donate. Thank you.

Below are the voices of women who have benefited from Women for Women's Congo Program - hopeful, generous, grateful. Please donate to support their effort, or set up a fundraising page and rally your friends and family behind them as well! "Just as you always run to change my life, I want to run to change the lives of other women. My running in my disabled state will encourage other people to join." -Generose "I would love to run in order to raise money to sponsor other women. The situation we are in is bad. You helped change my life." -Furaha "I would like to run because it will benefit the women who are really needy, so they can get out of hardships and become aware of good things. I thank American women so much for their devotion, and I encourage them to keep supporting us!" -Francine Funds raised here benefit the entirety of Women for Women International's Congo program.
