JWW joins Ben Affleck’s Eastern Congo Initiative
Jewish World Watch Co-founder and President Janice Kamenir-Reznik and Executive Director Tzivia Schwartz Getzug have just returned from a trip to the Congo, where earlier this year JWW did an exploratory visit to see what the group could do to help stop the devastating brutality and exploitation of women and children there. On their return last week, they announced that JWW has become co-founding partners in the Eastern Congo Initiative, founded by actor Ben Affleck. The group will focus on advocacy and grantmaking, supporting the Congolese people through “local, community-based approaches.” For information go to jewishworldwatch.org or easterncongo.org.
