:30 PM at The Reeves Center : Edna Cromwell Community Room, 2000 14th Street, NW, 2nd floor, WDC. The agonies of war-torn Africa are deeply etched in the bodies of women. In eastern , vying militias, armies and bandits use rape as a weapon of terror. Recently engaged to a young man from her village, 20 year-old Lumo Sinai couldn't wait to have children and start a family. But when she crossed paths with marauding soldiers who brutally attacked her, she was left with a fistula- a condition that has rendered her incontinent and threatens her ability to give birth in the future. Rejected by her fiancé and cast aside by her family, Lumo found her way to the one place that may save her Congo : a hospital for rape survivors set on the border with Rwanda.
