PCC MISSION MOMENTS World AIDS Day

Dr. Eddy Jonas, head of women’s health at Zanmi Lasantein Haiti, is standing up for victims of gender-based violence. While Haiti’s justice system is unable to respond adequately to widespread occurrences of violence against women, Dr. Jonas remains committed to providing the medical care, psychosocial support and community accompaniment victims need to recover. Dr. Jonas is thankful for the support from Presbyterian World Service & Development that is helping address this critical human rights issue and giving victims hope again.“If we can’t receive victims and give them proper treatment, then we are a part of the system of violence,” says Dr. Jonas. “There is a level of responsibility. ”His hope for the program is to provide a shelter for women after they receive treatment.
