There is an organization called EngenderHealth (website: that supports a major global project to focus on the treatment and prevention of fistula. It works in partnership with CARE, IntraHealth, Meridian Group International and additional public and private groups to address this horrible result of violent rape.

I am listening to Ms. Farrow's account and feel at a loss as to where to begin offering my assistance. Is a donation to UNICEF the best start?

I was wondering if Ms. Farrow could speak about the widespread use of sexual violence in the DRC.

I met Ms. Farrow's son Ronan at a UN event a few years ago and was very impressed by his dedication to human rights. Is Ronan still working with Ms. Farrow and has he graduated from Yale Law? Thanks
