Auntie and family

This past weekend I was given the unpleasant news of a tragedy that happened back in Kivumu were some of my family member live. One of my uncles wife and 2 other women went out to search for food and while away, a group of men called Mai Mai abducted them, beat them, raped the woman and killed 2 woman and a men. Only 1 survived after fleeing the ordeal which was my aunt. My wish is to support my aunt with some counseling due to the PTSD that she will be encountering in the weeks if not years to come. Since they live in a remote village, there is no local hospital for her to get treatment. I am asking for help so that I can get her transportation to and from the nearest city so that she can get the healing she so desperately needs.
 
All of the parents that passed away as well as the one that survived, have children that are either orphaned or have a parent that is not able to take care of them. The village will now be taking care of the kids since they are orphaned. We are asking for donations to assist with food and clothing for the kids.47610726_1587668522472462_r.jpeg47610726_1587668552343952_r.jpeg
