Your connections – it be with your pastor, artist, manager MP or Student Union can help immensely to break the silence
Below are few ways others are helping to campaign for Congo:

  • Ask your college, university or union to pass a Motion on the wars and sexual atrocities engulfing the Congo
  • Write to your MP and MEP
  • Organize an event, i.e. 5K, Tournament, Dinner, Living room Meeting, and Concert etc.
