Dr. Denis Mukwege at the Trust Fund for Victims: The rehabilitation and de-stigmatisation of victim survivors of sexual violence – a soap story

The Hague, 26 September 2016

 

In a meeting with staff and management of the Trust Fund for Victims (TFV) in The Hague, Dr Denis Mukwege praised the impressive results achieved by the TFV and its implementing partner BEATIL-ALT in support of victims of sexual violence, through association with the Panzi hospital in Bukavu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Following surgery and other medical treatment at Panzi hospital, victim survivors of gender based and sexual violence (SGBV) receive much needed psychological care and socio-economic support.  According to Dr Mukwege, “these are the three main pillars of support for victim survivors to achieve the transformation from being a victim, towards becoming well-regarded members of their families and communities again.”
