The RINJ Foundation is going to Africa and Will Need Security for its people. That’s where I come in. If you are a Nurse or a Patient at an RSAC, I with my team keep you safe.
The ReaperTeam as we call the private security force that protects the RSAC nurses as they travel overland and go about their work at various locations will not tolerate any threat to the RSAC staff and patients. We have perfected our skills and tactics in some of the worst environments on earth. That’s what I do. My Nickname is “Reaper” and the team got dubbed that so often it stuck. “reaper Team”. With my male co-Director of Security, the team is well lead by a broad range of training and disciplines and our patients’ and staffs’ safety is well provided for. We are very aggressive in pursuing our duties in the most passive manner possible. Normally we remain invisible but in the recent conflict in Mosul, Iraq we have needed to speak out a little after being caught behind battle lines. That’s drifting into the past. We go forward, strong and silent.
Looking at a flood of seriously injured female and child survivors United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has said he is deeply troubled by Boko Haram’s “continuing indiscriminate and horrific attacks” against the civilian populations of Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria, according to the United Nations.
In a statement a UN spokesperson said the Secretary General was very upset and even appalled by the continued abductions and use of children as so-called “human bombs,” as well as by the testimony of many of the rape survivor girls and women held by Boko Haram who said they are repeatedly raped while in captivity and compelled to marry their captors as part of the group’s ongoing campaign of forced imprisonment and sexual violence. This is the incipient stage of a genocidal rampage.
“The perpetrators of these despicable acts must be brought to justice,” the Secretary-General’s declared in his statement. “He regrets that in spite of the military gains made by the affected countries, Boko Haram continues its wanton destruction and killing of civilians.”
Sexual violence has been employed by Boko Haram as a weapon of war against female populations.
You may recall some 276 girls were abducted by Boko Haram from their school in Chibok, located in Nigeria’s restive north-eastern Borno state, in April 2014, as the militant group began to ramp up brutal attacks targeting the African country’s children. As time has passed those attacks have increased in frequency and in severity.
At the same time the U.N. Secretary General voiced deep concern over the further displacement of some 40,000 civilians in Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria in the first three weeks of May 2015 and urged members of the Lake Chad Basin Commission and Benin “to create a secure environment for the safe and voluntary return, resettlement or integration of displaced persons and refugees.”
He has also asked that the NGO The RINJ Foundation do whatever can be done to assist survivors in line with international humanitarian, human rights and refugee law.
“To be remotely effective, the response to this threat has to go beyond a purely military one,” it continued. “Legitimate grievances, past and current human rights violations, and the root causes of the conflict must also be addressed,” says the U.N. Boss.
RINJ is designing new permanent Nurse-led Women’s clinics and mobile clinics to help us care for survivors of sexual assault in war zones and areas of armed conflict in Africa. We need your help to move quickly because in Africa, the Islamic State, active by many names, is attacking, raping and murdering innocent civilians in one country after another, often using rape as a method of genocide.
Patients must be seen by nurses repeatedly each week for weeks and months in order to ensure their survival. Suicide is a big problem but ability to survive is also challenged without proper care.
Sexually transmitted diseases from rapists and unwanted rape-pregnancies are epidemic and must be treated. It’s what the RSACs do
The mental health care provided by RSACs is intended to prevent suicide and to put the survivor back on track in a useful and productive life. Most survivors are able to do that after long-term outpatient care. They owed this by all of humanity.
