Michele then spoke about the history of HopeNow and afterwards we watched a short video that tells parts of the story of one of the women HopeNow has worked with, Monica (who features in the documentary by Anja Dalhoff, Dancing with Monica).
Midway through the evening we enjoyed some music by John Motumbo, a well known singer and guitarist from the Congo, who not only took time out of his European tour to be with us, but also wrote and performed a song he has entitled HopeNow.
