Dr. Denis Mukwege Foundation
In recent years, rape as a weapon of war has gained increasing prominence on international and national agendas. Yet survivors face inadequate support and perpetrators often go unpunished. The Mukwege Foundation works to influence decision-makers and the wider public to bring about change in policies and practices to end rape as a weapon of war. In addition, the organization promotes the scaling up of successful holistic healing programmes for survivors by taking good practices from Panzi hospital in the DRC to other conflict-affected areas.
