Heal ❆ Live ❆ Hope ❆ GIVE

Heal ❆ Live ❆ Hope ❆ GIVE

Every day, children and women arrive at Panzi Hospital, Maison Dorcas, and our rural sites. Every day, you are an integral part of the healing pathway.

From medical care and pioneering fistula repair, to well-babies and maternal care, to our renowned music therapy program, Panzi Foundation USA is supporting holistic, survivor-centered healing. 

Today is #GivingTuesday, and Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised on Facebook for US nonprofits. .

Donations to Panzi made through Facebook’s charitable giving tools today, November 28th will be matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit or $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. The match will begin at 8AM EST (5AM PST).

We are deeply grateful for your support, and your dedication. Please make your year-end gift to Panzi Foundation today - together we are transforming lives. 

Thank you, and best wishes for a happy holiday season,

Warmly,

Dr. Lee Ann De Reus, Founder and Board Chair

Through #MyGivingStory, we hope to learn more about you and your connection to fighting sexualized violence, and what inspires you to join us in supporting  the vulnerable women and children we serve, our indefatigable colleagues,  and everyone who lives on the frontline of the humanitarian crisis in Congo. 

Here's how it works: Visit http://mygivingstory.givingtuesday.org/ and upload your story, photo(s), or video and let them know why Panzi Foundation USA and Dr. Mukwege inspire YOU to give!

Every entry, every story creates a chance for PanziUSA to receive up to $10,000! And if you recruit 3 other people (friends, family, colleagues) to submit their giving story and we will highlight your story on #GivingTuesday social media channels - and so will the generous folks at #GivingTuesday!

Make sure you tag us on TwitterInstagram, or Facebook- use our campaign hashtags #PanziStrong or #FemmeForte with #MyGivingStory for your chance to be featured on our site and receive a special gift made at Maison Dorcas. 

Thank you for lifting your voice for Survivors everywhere, especially the 50,000 women and children treated at Panzi Hospital and Maison Dorcas in eastern Congo. Together, we are #PanziStrong!

Escalating violence, political instability, and corruption are a continuous threat. Vulnerable citizens and traumatized survivors of sexual violence require services - and at Panzi Hospital and Maison Dorcas - there is sanctuary. 

Last year, your dedication to supporting the children and women we serve every day was unprecedented. This year, we are inviting to to tell us your Giving Story. Through #MyGivingStory, we hope to learn more about you and the community we've built together - with our Founder, Dr. Denis Mukwege and the courageous doctors, clinicians, and staff in Congo. 

As we tell our stories, and share stories from our friends and partners, we want to hear from you. Tag us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook- use our campaign hashtags #PanziStrong or #FemmeForte with #MyGivingStory for a chance to be featured on our site and our year end newsletter, and receive a special gift made at Maison Dorcas. 

Thank you for your generous support and helping us lift the voices of more than 50,000 women and children in eastern Congo. Together, we are #PanziStrong!
