From Coopera ONGD we thank all cyclists registered in the march for their participation because thanks to their registration we will be able to carry out this project that gives assistance and support to girls who have been or are being victims of rape and sexual assault in South Kivu. Doctor Denis Mukewe has also been involved in this project, who recently received the Award S & aacute; the United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights and Jarov, that collaborates with its PANZI foundation performing the surgical interventions that these girls need to save their lives or ‘rebuild’ as far as possible their little bodies.
And it is that in the last months the violations between small of between 2 Y 10 years have increased alarmingly. Sad is the cause: and it is that it has spread the rumor among the rebel and armed groups that roam freely in the area, that these girls' blood 'cures AIDS or makes them invisible to bullets'. Our project cares for these girls who need urgent operations and medical attention. Coopera has already taken over more than 24 girls, giving medical assistance and subsequent psychological assistance to her or her family. The vast majority of cases are not reported and do not go to hospital. Rape victims have very serious and serious consequences on their health, f both RIVER music and mental.
We also reiterate our thanks to each and every one of the volunteers who have helped us in taking care of the organization and especially to those who spent the morning at the aid stations.; to Riojafoto for the work of its partner-volunteers who, for the whole day, They took photographs of the march in order to donate them to Coopera for their solidarity sale. To the sponsors, collaborators and other entities that helped us with the dissemination of the test; and of course Carlos Coloma and all his team.
This test has been possible thanks to the sponsorship or collaboration of: Municipality of Alberite, Municipality of Albelda, Government of La Rioja, Rioja Sports Foundation, Clavijo Town Hall, Arandinos Estate, Green areas, Scale, Ferrer, Riojana Cycling Federation, Balcon de Mateo, Retrocycle.
¡Until next year!
