At the Run for Congo Women in Chicago one runner went above and beyond to not only support women of the Congo with her participation but to spread the word about this powerful movement. Running with her children, Charise Carter took a video of her day beginning with her arrival at the park and following her through the Run for Congo Women. Along with footage of the run and some activities before and after, you can see Priscilla Muntemba Taylor, Women for Women International’s Sponsorship Coordinator for DRC, Rwanda, and Sudan speak about the organization and sponsorship program. Charise’s video will give you an idea of the energy and enthusiasm surrounding the whole event!
By shooting this video and posting it on YouTube for anyone to see, Charise is able to reach out to so many more people and spread the word about this powerful grassroots movement that tells the world that Congolese lives matter. Thank you Charise for sharing your experience with us and for doing all you can to help women in the Congo!
