He and his colleagues have treated about 30,000 rape victims, developing great expertise in the treatment of serious sexual injuries. His story includes disturbing accounts of rape as a weapon of war. This is his story: When war broke out, 35 patients in my hospital in Lemera in eastern DR Congo were killed in their beds. I fled to Bukavu, 100km (60 miles) to the north, and started a hospital made from tents. I built a maternity ward with an operating theatre. In 1998, everything was destroyed again. So, I started all over again in 1999. It was that year that our first rape victim was brought into the hospital. After being … [Read more...] about A TRUE HERO…

Hi there, Thanks for reading this post! My two daughters kept asking me 'when will you make something for us?' and I kept telling them that wander.ful is a women's label, not a kids' label. But I did make them some samples and soon enough other kids (and their mothers) started to ask me when they could buy their wander.ful shirt or sweater. Sooooo, that's why we decided to start with a few kids' items as well. Two beautiful, heather grey sweaters. One with a neon orange wander.ful logo print and the other one with a white (flock) logo print! And that went wel!! Only yesterday I put them up for sale in the webshop (they are also available - just in white- at Le Marais deux in Maastricht) and already nearly sold out! Especially the grey one with the orange print went very fast: … [Read more...] about wander.ful kids!

Due to some technical problems the hoodies can not be shown at the webshop yet, but if you send a mail to email@example.com, we will be sending … [Read more...] about The WANDER.FUL logo hoodie is out!
WHY IS FAST FASHION A BAD THING? Fast fashion disempowers women With fast fashion you trap a generation of young women into poverty. 75 million people are making our clothes today. 80% is made by women who are only 18 - 24 years old. It takes a garment worker 18 months to earn what a fashion brand CEO makes on their lunch break. A majority of them earn less than $3 per day. The biggest corners fast fashion cuts are human. Cheap clothes are made by underage workers entering the industry as young as 14 to work long hard hours (an avg. of 14 hrs per day in sweatshops) for low wages, while dealing with sexual harassment. Fast fashion is expensive for you and our planet Fast fashion is designed to be replaced quickly, not so much by desire but by need. Clothing literally … [Read more...] about Why is fast fashion a bad thing [and what can WE do about it]?
