Panzi Foundation


Healing sanctuary

In 1999, Dr. Denis Mukwege founded the Panzi Hospital in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. The region has been devastated by war and an epidemic of sexualized violence for twenty years. Today, the Panzi Hospital serves more than 400,000 constituents in the Ibanda Health Zone.  The US based Panzi Foundation makes strategic investments at Panzi Hospital and Panzi Foundation DRC. We also develop and engage in strategic advocacy to end violence against women and girls in the DRC and around the world.

The Panzi Model


Medical and Holistic Healing

 

Panzi Hospital operates a mobile clinic as well as one stop centers, and has treated more than 46,000 girls and women with complex gynecological injuries, over 23,000 of whom are survivors of sexualized violence. Founder and Medical Director Dr. Denis Mukwege, PhD created our scaleable, sustainable model of medical and holistic healing.

Internationally recognized experts in fistula repair, we understand the healing path of each individual requires much more than medical care alone. Survivors, along with other vulnerable women, have access to Panzi’s best-in-class model of holistic healing: transitional housing, therapeutic counseling, legal aid, community reintegration services and job training.
