Ineza’s Story

“The church has really been helpful, I did not attend church much, and so had no expectations from them. However when I experienced their caring and love, I decided to go to church more often and there experienced so much love and acceptance. They visit me; they make sure that I have all that I need. I am now part of the choir and they also accept my child. Their caring has allowed me to face the world, I do not feel so much shame now because of the rape, and they accept me and have adopted me into their family. I can face the world” Ineza*

This is just one testimony of how the church has been mobilised to support survivors of sexual violence in Rwanda, as part of a pilot programme by the Anglican Diocese of Kigali and Gasabo in partnership with coalition member, Tearfund.
