Hope amidst terror

This article by Alex Duval Smith, published in the British newspaper the Observer, tells the most awful truths about the war-rape of women in eastern Congo and reports on the tireless commitment of gynaecologist Denis Mukwege, who heals the victims. Mukwege and his team surgically repair the horrific damage the women have suffered, and the doctor has also set up a safe house where the women can begin to recover and become self-sufficient. It is a story that speaks of atrocious cruelty, but also shows that in the midst of terror and destruction there can be hope and inspiration.
