Take a look at the humanitarian aid work howFar is doing in sub Saharan Africa.
"The howFar Orphanage which houses 120 children age 5 to 10 who have lost their parents in the war. The home offers a place of safety for children who would otherwise be on the street.
The howFar Abused Women's Center which counsels and trains women who have been raped by soldiers. The North Kivu region, where the HowFar Compound sits, currently has the highest reported instances of rape in the entire world.
The howFar Widows Center which trains and counsels women who have lost their husbands in the war."Special thanks go to Jerry and Rick Kolar and their K & K Portage market for catering the event, to Jay Drake and Andrea & Mark Orchard for proving the wonderful music, to the Cleveland Cavaliers for the autographed Dion Waiters basketball and to all the people who traveled from near and far to make this such a successful event.

"Official UN figures also show that recorded cases of sexual violence in North Kivu soared from 4,689 cases in 2011 to 7,075 in 2012. Many more cases remain unreported." http://allafrica.com/stories/201307310087.htmlWomen who have been raped are customarily shunned by their families and are forced onto the streets.
