The section below summarizes the work done during the month of May 2020.

Fundraising for Covid-19 Prevention: To date 9 people have contributed a total of $365 out of a goal of $1,162.

ACTIVITIES  FWA STAFF CAPACITY BUILDING

On May 11-15, 2020, under the support of Segal Family Foundation (SFF),  seven of FWA staff involved in the self-help (SHG) approach benefited from a training for better monitoring and evaluation of the Self Help Groups. Facilitators were from BIRATURABA.

Maternity Ward Building

Rape Survivors’ Support (RSS)

One three-day trauma healing workshop was done in May 2020

HROC Workshop (May 27-29, 2020)

Facilitators Name: MISAGO Gisele and HORANIMANA Grace

Recommendation

  • A follow up of participant is needed 
  • An evaluation to measure the impact of HROC on participant is needed

Lessons Learned:

Many of the participants are victims of domestic violence; they live with their husbands who are actors of their violence which complicates their healing process. In the future, this will certainly require a safe shelter for gender based violence survivors.

Testimonies

My name is Mary. “I was in the rebel army, and in the forest there was no way to choose someone you love. I married a soldier man but I didn't loved him at all.

When we were preparing to leave the rebellion and join the national army in 2005, I chose to join the national army instead of being demobilized. That’s what I knew when I left the rebellion. It was my greatest vision to be a female soldier and have a salary every month.

After having selected those who are going to go to the national army I was surprised hearing that I was among those who would be demobilized.

It was after that my husband told me that he is the one who sold my name because he can't live with a female soldier that I have to stay home for housework. It hurt me so much because my vision failed.

My husband started to mistreat me; he beats me, he doesn't give me food for the family, I have no rights on his bank account. He even went to Somalia in a mission but I never saw money as the woman who is raising his children.

When I saw that, I refused to let him beat me like a child  I decided to defend myself and it's the quarrels that reign in our house so that even our children are traumatized. Because of anger I became a sex worker but nobody knows and I take refuge in the alcohol.

I say thank you for this training I feel relieved I could understand that if I continue this path I will end up destroying myself.”

_____

“My name is Evelyne. I lost my parents when I was in high school. My parents left me with a business. Unfortunately when in the central market was burnt I lost everything in this fire. But as I knew how to work hard I was able to have a capital 3 000 000BIF and I began a business again.

My husband married me because of my money. He did investigation on me and knew that I have money. I got pregnant and I could not do my business as before because I was very weak. My husband proposed me to give him the money in order to continue doing the business I was doing and I accepted without a doubt.

When he took my money in his hands he never came back home. He wasted my money on alcohol and women. He beats me. He sold everything we had in the house even the mattress.

I lost weight until no one knew me. Until now I am in this situation but I thank FWA who organized this workshop because I did not dare to speak; everything that happened to me I kept in my heart. I saw myself in the glass of normal stress and traumatic stress.

ACTIVITIES  Quaker Peace Network (QPN) ProjectUnder the support of Quaker Peace Network Burundi, FWA was able to organize one trauma healing workshop and one session on early warning and early response (EWER) in Nyabiraba commune, Bujumbura province

Testimony

My name is Desire, I lost my uncle in 2005 killed by the remaining fighting rebel group named FNL. During that time, I was finishing my secondary studies.  I heard that bad news on radio at 5PM. The thing that hurt me the most is that I didn’t get the opportunity to assist at his burial ceremony, we didn’t mourn until today. The perpetrators shot him and because he didn’t die immediately, they slaughtered him with a knife and took some parts of him. In fact, the rebels were after me because they said that they need to talk with the ‘’instructed boy’’. We just took a time to flee away with all the family. The other thing that hurt me is that the departure of my uncle created a void and divisions within our family. I met the very person who killed my uncle in 2012. In our discussion, it seemed that he took lightly what he did arguing that in those periods with just BIF 500 you could kill a person. This hurt me so much. I came to forgive them but I could not forget what they did to my family.

He sold our plot without notifying me. I have tried many times to go back home. But since my parents no longer exist, my brother refused to let me live with him.

Testimony:

My name is Anitha. I am 32 years old and attended the meeting for pregnant women on ultrasound. I was coming for the first time to NTASEKA clinic because I heard that there is something for pregnant women living near Ntaseka clinic.I took advantage of the meeting before joining the antenatal service for the first time. I’m now beyond eight months pregnant. This is my 4th pregnancy. I admit having neglected this pregnancy because I have conflicts with the author of my pregnancy. I usually have no problems when I am pregnant. My last 3 pregnancies have gone on without any complications. These are the reasons why I have not come for antenatal consultations.

TESTIMONY

My name is Languide. I have graduated from high school, but I didn’t find a job. As my parents were always quarrelling, I didn’t manage to stay at home in the countryside. I have been jobless for two years. I left home when my father started to attack me complaining that he wasted his money when he paid school fees for a girl.  My heart was so heavy because of his words that I fled from home. When I arrived here in Bujumbura, I had already in mind to marry any man I met because of economic problems. Then I got married to a husband who lied to me that he was still single. I got pregnant, and when my delivery date was close, he left me in the house alone. The owner of the house kicked me out because I had no means to pay the rent. I have suffered a lot before I had my baby. Now, I have managed to run small business, and we can survive with my kid.
