October is Violence against Women Awareness Month. Earlier this week, hearings were held on Capitol Hill to consider legislation to address violence against women on an international scale. The committee would provide aid through humanitarian relief and grants to local organisations in the affected regions.
Specifically, the Women and Children of Darfur serve as a prime example of this unyielding violence. I am so encouraged by these women and children who despite unspeakably violent circumstances continue to live their lives to the fullest capacity. I pray for them. And I will continue to raise my voice for them. Won't you please join me?
