Dr. Mukwege’s US Tour


It’s always a special pleasure to spend time with Dr. Mukwege. Peter Frantz, executive director of Panzi Foundation and I are pictured here with the good doctor during his recent trip to Los Angeles for events organized by our friends at Jewish World Watch.  Dinner at our hotel went on for 3 hours as we strategized about the future of Panzi Foundation USA and our efforts to help Dr. Mukwege realize his vision for Panzi hospital. The three of us co-founded PFUSA in 2010 – a privilege and honor for me and Peter. Prior to LA, Dr. Mukwege made a stop at the University of Michigan. Meetings in New York and Washington, DC were also on his hectic schedule. He received the Civil Courage Prize on Oct. 15. Read his acceptance speech here:  http://www.panzihospital.org/archives/1946
