Abby and Kyalu were abducted by a rebel group in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 2008. Abby was forced to do hard labor for the rebels. Kyalu, his wife, was raped, and had a child as a result. Once Abby was able to escape from the rebel group, he expelled Kyalu from their home. The film below tells their journey of recovery as part of an initiative called Living Peace, led by Promundo. This is the story they wanted to tell.
Promundo are the recipients of the inaugural Womanity Award in 2014.
