This evening at dinner I met a remarkable lady. Bethany is here as a guest of the mental health team. Along with six other women she is leading a trauma care workshop for abused children and children wounded by political violence in Togo.
Bethany started a non-profit called eXile International after a trip to Congo in June 2008. Her experiences there spoke so deeply to her that she started this organisation to provide counseling and healing to former child soldiers.
The stories that she shared sent shivers down my spine. Please visit her blog .The Heart of Exile. or read more about eXile international here.
