  7. 7. The Sisterhood Charity Information The Babes In Arms Appeal is dedicated to funding research and humanitarian aid for the protection of mothers and enfants around the world including research into Cot Death, miscariages, HIV transmission as well as rape counselling in Eastern Congo. It is an appeal within 2 charities NPIMR for its medical research work and IMET2000 for its international aid work. By combining research and aid Babes in Arms is in a strong position to help women all over the world. The main fundraising events are coordinated by the Sisterhood including record breaking sporting challenges and high profile social events. Originally set up in 1991 by Grace Tye to fund research into cot death Babes in Arms has now expanded to include international aid projects in Palestine, Senegal before teaming up in 2008 with Leah Chisughi to protect the women and children of Eastern Congo. In 2008 Médecins Sans Frontières estimated that 75% of all the rape cases it dealt with worldwide were in eastern Congo. Many are left HIV positive and pregnant. Congolese human rights groups estimate seven out of 10 women have been raped. Human rights groups say that while rape is a product of many conflicts, its systematic nature in Congo makes it a “weapon of war” used to terrorise and punish communities or as a tool of ethnic cleansing. Doctors say the onslaught against women is notable not only for its scale but for its brutality. Gang rapes are commonplace and frequently accompanied by torture in which women are mutilated by having guns or stakes thrust into their vaginas, or their genitals slashed with knives. One in four who make it to hospitals in Goma and Rutshuru require major surgery. More than a third are teenagers. Babes in Arms believes the violation of women and children is unacceptable
