Representatives from an Israeli NGO will join Angelina Jolie and William Hague next month in London as they share their expertise in ending sexual violence as a tool of war.

IsraAID, an Israeli non-profit with standing aid missions across the globe and a focus on post-trauma care and long-term recovery, has been invited by the British government to present its program on gender-based violence at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, scheduled for June 10-13. IsraAID representatives, including social workers and trauma care specialists, will present a panel using the NGO’s successful program in Juba, South Sudan as a case study.

The British summit is co-chaired by Hague, Britain’s foreign secretary; and Jolie, who in addition to being an Academy Award-winning actress is Special Envoy for the UN High Commissioner on Refugees.

IsraAid has had a team working in South Sudan since the country earned its independence in 2011. The organization’s volunteers have teamed with local partners to train locals about the reality of gender-based violence, its long-term psychological consequences, and tactics to both prevent its occurrence and deal with its residual trauma.
