Global Activism: Congolese Torture Survivor Aids His Village
Mputa Mbundzu was living in the Republic of Congo (Brazzaville) when a massacre occurred in his home village. Mbundzu fell into political disfavor after starting an organization to support families of massacre victims. He was arrested multiple times, beaten, and tortured until he escaped to the United States. Mbundzu now has asylum in the U.S. and is holding fundraisers to support victims of human rights abuses in his village.
