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 40,000 women with complex gynecological injuries, 19,270 of whom are survivors of sexualized violence, becoming internationally recognized experts in fistula repair. True healing cannot begin and end with physical care: 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. Panzi Foundation USA engages in strategic advocacy to end violence against women and makes strategic investments at Panzi Hospital to heal women & restore lives.
