University of Alberta Med Students raise awareness, March 2010

March is the month to mark International Women’s Day, and to honour the struggle of women against violence, the Obstetrics and Gynaecology club of the University of Alberta are organizing an awareness campaign to support survivors of sexual violence in the DRC. Activities include petitioning  Ottawa MPs, a bake sale, and a screening of the documentary The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo by Lisa F. Jackson.

    Our bake sale, last Wednesday and Thursday March 10 and 11 in honor of International Women’s Week was a huge success! We raised almost $500 for SAFER and everyone we talked to was shocked to hear about the situation in the DRC for women and was very happy to support a Canadian NGO that was doing something about it!

  2. That’s fantastic! Thank you to everyone for your support.
