START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Ms. Mukwamputu has been working for Femme Plus in Bukavu since
1997. Femme Plus is perhaps the major NGO in the DRC dealing with
HIV/AIDS and women's issues. HIV/AIDS is a particularly serious
concern in the Bukavu area. This area has one of the highest
infection rates in the DRC due to the conflict in the eastern
Congo and the routine use of rape as a weapon of war. Ms.
Mukwamputu will benefit greatly from the knowledge she will gain
from this program. The Country Team has approved this nominee.
