About Us

The Dr. Denis Mukwege Foundation is an international human rights organization working to end sexual violence in wars. We draw attention to the most shameful crimes during conflicts and support survivors rebuilding their futures.

Together with our special adviser, the Congolese gynecologist and women’s rights activist Dr. Denis Mukwege, we are working towards a world where sexual violence is no longer used as a weapon and survivors receive the care they need.

We promote holistic quality care for survivors of sexual violence in conflicts worldwide.

We support programs for survivors, implemented by Dr. Mukwege’s Panzi Foundation and Hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

We work with governments to enforce the norms and laws prohibiting sexual violence and call on decision-makers to take action.
