More than just a number, each of the 48,482 women and girls has a name and a story. They come to Panzi Hospital in eastern DR Congo seeking treatment for their injuries due to rape. They leave with healed bodies, preserved dignity, and renewed hope thanks to Panzi’s holistic model of care.
It’s been 6 years since Dr. Denis Mukwege, the founder of Panzi Hospital, Peter Frantz, and I started Panzi Foundation USA to help support the work of Dr. Mukwege and his remarkable hospital staff. The infographic below is a stark reminder that the atrocities continue and our efforts must not waver. Will you join us? Together we can help Dr. Mukwege and the women and girls of Congo realize their vision for safety and peace. Learn how by visiting www.panzifoundation.org.
