"Emotionally numbed after her father's death from cancer, photographer Lisa Shannon saw a report on Oprah that pulled her out of her depression and propelled her to find a way to help Congolese women. She formed a fund-raising organization called Run for Congo Women that raises money through races across the U.S., and she went to Congo to visit beneficiaries of her programme. Shannon was nearly overwhelmed by the terrible conditions she found and the enthusiastically grateful responses from the women she met. Though A Thousand Sisters depicts alarming situations that may seem insoluble, it also offers hope through Shannon's programme and others like it."
