Assisting communities affected by war in Bukavu, Congo, Africa
Hope of St. Joseph
Previous visits of Fr. Donato to Africa:
Preparedness and Awareness Training Sessions Against Sexual Violence
These training sessions and workshops are happening often at the Shelter. They are open to the entire community and their objective is to sensitize and educate families regarding the issues of sexual violence, abuse, rape, etc. Our presenters/speakers educate through training and workshops to women, men, and community organizations. The purpose is to engage the community with difficult issues like rape culture, sexual violence and abuse and learn to act together against all forms of violence.
Fr. Donato returned to Bukavu, DR Congo, Africa. He will be missed in Canada, but residents of the shelter could not be happier!
