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 develop and engage in strategic advocacy to end violence against women and girls in the DRC and around the world.

STATEMENT FROM PANZI FOUNDATION DRC ON MONUSCO'S RETURN TO PANZI

COMMUNIQUE
C’est avec un cœur apaisé et soulagé que depuis quarante huit heure, nous médecins, personnels soignants et administratifs ainsi que malades de l'hôpital de référence de Panzi, remarquons avec grande satisfaction le retour de la présence permanente des soldats de la MONUSCO  autour de l’Hôpital Général de Référence de Panzi.
Nous saluons cet acte humanitaire pour la sécurité tant des malades que du personnel.
Nous voulons également saluer les Etats et les autorités onusiennes qui se sont investis pour le rétablissement de cette protection permanente.
Au nom de toutes les victimes des violences sexuelles, du personnel et du Dr. Denis Mukwege, nous présentons nos très sincères remerciements.
Pour la Fondation Panzi,
La communication.

Panzi Hospital operates a mobile clinic as well as one stop centers, and has treated more than 85,864 girls and women with complex gynecological injuries, more than 50,000 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.
