The Democratic Republic of Congo is a nation scarred by war. In one of the longest and deadliest conflicts in modern African history, the DRC lost more than 5.5 million lives. The trauma of kidnapping, violence, and rape left a nation of women, men, and children largely unable to function, incapable of rebuilding their lives or their devastated communities.
Hope Rising: Stories of Trauma and Healing chronicles the lives of teenagers, men and women brutalized by war and an experimental program to help them heal. A program simple but so profound that would bring healing to all who experience devastating circumstances.
