We Will Speak Out

We will speak out logoWe are a partner in the We Will Speak Out Coalition – a group of Christian organisations committed to ending sexual violence against everyone – men and women, boys and girls.

More information can be found http://www.wewillspeakout.org/ Mothers’ Union have been working in conflict zones to reconcile the dreadful injustices done during war. For example: in DRC women and girls are taken from their villages by soldiers to be used as sex slaves in their camps. When the soldiers move on these women and girls (who often have babies and young children conceived during rape) are left to fend for themselves. When they find their way back to their villages they are rejected by their families. Mothers’ Union works with these groups to enable the women to return to their homes and renew their former lives.

Verse of the Day

“When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. ‘In Bethlehem in Judea,’ they replied, ‘for this is what the prophet has written: ‘“But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.”’” — Matthew 2:4-6 Listen to chapter Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica.
