Survivors of rape deserve dignity, justice, and a chance to rebuild.
For the past 20 years, the Democratic Republic of Congo has been devastated by war and an epidemic of sexualized violence. Since its founding in 1999, Panzi Hospital has treated 19,270 of these survivors, becoming internationally recognized experts in fistula repair. After survivors' physical wounds heal, they receive holistic care: transitional housing, therapeutic counseling, legal aid, and job training. Panzi Foundation USA engages in strategic advocacy to stop violence against women, and provides grants to Panzi Hospital to heal women & restore their lives.
