The atrocity reports from eastern Congo were so hellish that Western medical experts refused to believe them—at first.
In Congo violent rape where women are kicked or have objects shoved into their genitals resulting in a condition called fistula: "a rupture of the walls that separate the vagina and bladder or rectum."
The statistics are staggering. All sides are doing this. I don't know how to react - it's one thing to be raped, it's another to be murdered, but to destroy lives in such an inhumane and violent way is beyond comment.
