raise hope for congo

As you can tell, I'm trying to raise awareness on how to help others. Locally, around the world and everywhere in-between. Here's another one that Perez wrote about today. Read up on it. Research it. Help out. This one is called Raise Hope for Congo.

"To protect and empower Congolese women and girls, the RAISE Hope for Congo campaign works to:

Raise awareness about the crisis, the resulting widespread sexual violence against women and girls, and the solutions that are necessary to end the conflict.
Increase news coverage of the conflict in eastern Congo.
Build a movement of activists who can advocate effectively for change.
Influence and change policy on the Congo through promotion of the 4Ps – Peace, Protection, Punishment, and Prevention – the four ingredients necessary to END the mass violence against women in Congo.
