 My name's Josselin Bandu Mikindo, I am a Congolese Human Rights Defender (HRD) working to defend and promote human rights, democracy and peace in Democratic Republic of Congo. I am the president of a non-governmental organization (NGO) called Blessed Aid. My work mainly focuses on documentation and identification of victims of ordinary and international crimes; legal support and raising awareness of victims of human rights violations specifically victims of international crimes (mass crimes); supervision and preparation of victims for their active participation to public trials; analyze and evaluate security and protection issues for victims, witnesses and all the people involved in the case underground as well as the cases taken to court. Besides peace and human rights, sexual and gender-based violence (GBV & SGBV), education, healthcare and overall protection I've been involved in via Blessed Aid, I also focus my activities on social and economic empowerment of women and youth both boys and girls affected by the different conflicts in the eastern DR Congo. The legal empowerment of members of local communities is also taken into consideration in my daily work.
