In the run up to the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict on 19 June, we are presenting four women. These women have set up their own activities with the support of GSF’s interim reparative measures.

Today, we meet Adama.

Adama is from Guinea. In 2009, she was forced to experience the tragic events of the September 28 Massacre in Conakry stadium, including killings and rapes by armed forces.

Today, she runs her own candy shop. She benefits from interim reparations and is proud about her achievements. She walks with her head held high: “Today I have changed. My life continues to change (...). I am very happy with what I am doing”.

Reparations are a right to every survivor of Conflict-Related Sexual Violence.

It is time we end impunity for perpetrators and provide survivors with the justice and recognition that they deserve.
