Dear friends,


As we continue to share updates from Isis-WICCE Peace Exposition in Lango
sub-region, here is a sad story  of a 30-year-old mother of five from Kole
was beaten by her husband using a goat which she had proposed to sell to
raise school fees for their daughter in Primary two. Ms Judith Pole  recalls
that on September 8, her husband who has since disappeared from the village,
came back home drunk and picked the goat which he used to beat her, arguing
that she did not have authority over it.


Ms Pole is now in a sad condition. She cannot sleep on her back because of
the wounds she sustained there, her buttocks, thighs and legs. She cannot
sit or walk.


Isis-WICCE team found her in Pentecostal Assembly of God Health Centre in
Lira District where  she  was admitted and she is paralyzed from her lower
limbs downwards.
