Dr. Denis Mukwege - CNN Interview on Sexual Violence in Ukraine

June 7, 2022 | Donor Direct Action

Our brilliant partner and friend, Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Denis Mukwege of the Panzi Foundation recently spoke with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on the harsh realities of armed conflict and the urgent need to end rape as a weapon of war. The Panzi Foundation specializes in supporting women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo who have survived acts of sexual violence at the hands of soldiers in armed conflict.

Now Dr. Mukwege speaks on why he is not surprised to see reports of rape in Ukraine and what changes are needed to end the dehumanizing practice of wartime rape for good.

Thanks to all of you who have supported the Panzi Foundation over the years and to any who are unfamiliar with their work, please read about all of their amazing work and consider lending them your support.
