Entry Description: War, Poverty, Prostitution.
Many displaced women, victims of a raging war that for several years has hit the Democratic Republic of Congo, live in Goma, capital city of North Kivu, in extreme poverty. Some of them are forced to prostitute themselves as a means of survival. A group of young prostitutes live together in a tiny two-room house in the poverty-stricken Kabutembo neighbourhood. On Saturdays early in the morning they start drinking alcohol and taking drugs so as to face a hard day´s work at a brothel in town. They are victims of war, victims of poverty, victims of sex the sex trade.
