Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

The challenges of being a deaf woman in a war-torn country

2015-12-20

The Democratic Republic of Congo is a forgotten country. But for those living in it, twenty years of conflict and devastation still make life hard. It's even more difficult for these four deaf women.

Their story is told in the documentary, "Inner Me.”

"The first time I died was when I lost my hearing at age 5. The second time was when my mother died and I was left alone.”

Jemima, Immaculée, Sulvie and Stuka, in addition to living with their disability, must deal with the prejudice and superstition people in their country treat the disabled with.

"He knew that nobody would believe the story of a deaf person because people think we are freaks... or evil. I felt even more lonely and isolated.”

The film's director visited the deaf community of Butembo, in the North Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is a mission founded in 1849 by the Italian priest Giuseppe Gualandi that promotes the social and human development of people with disabilities.

"Until now we have funded the film entirely on our own. We have very special friends who helped us along the way but we still need funds to cover all of the expenses for the post-production.”

Their goal is to raise 14,000 Euros for post-production. They hope it'll give a voice to those who don't have one.
