Feeling Special at Christmas—and All Year Long


Feeling valued: some of the ladies helped at the Women’s Wellness Center, with Pastor Simeon Muhunga at center

Dear Friends,

Every Christmas we do our best to bless the ladies at the Women’s Wellness Center in Goma, DR Congo, with something extra to remind them how loved they are. In 2013 we gave new shoes to each woman and their children, thanks to our generous donors. We did this again last November during our visit, and we also provided extra food to help them make it through the holiday season.

As most of you know, these ladies have suffered terrible sexual violations from militants on both sides of the ongoing civil war. Vital to their restoration is helping them understand their immeasurable worth to God. In addition to teaching them about how God sees them, we also try to tell them how much their spiritual family around the world loves them through gifts of shoes and food, to name just two of the many ways we help.

Thank you for being His hands and feet to the “least of these”!


Safi, one of the women who are helped at the Women’s Wellness Center, with Placide, her precious child through rape

Because of Him,

Carole Collins
Director, Victims of Sexual Violence Fund
