A mother (pictured) and her two daughters (ages 15 and 17) live together in a UN camp for internally displaced people near Goma. The three women have each been raped, even several times. As a result of the rapes the two daughters both became pregnant and are now raising their own babies. According to the women the rapes were comitted by the CNDP militia and the national army - (Forces Armees de la Republique Democratique du Congo (FARDC)). The rest of the family members, young and old, have all been killed in terrifying sadistic manners. At one point the mother was asked to drink the blood of one of her children that they just killed. She denied, saying that she would prefer death.
