Visit of Denis Mukwege, Director of the Panzi Hospital in Bukavu, to the EC

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, and Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC in charge of International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, received Denis Mukwege, Director of the Panzi Hospital in Bukavu. The hospital cares for victims of rape – a crime that affects hundreds of thousands of women in the Democratic Republic of Congo every year. Doctor Mukwege's visit to Brussels followed a brutal attack against him on 25 October, in which he was almost killed. A member of his staff lost his life in the incident. Andris Piebalgs expressed full support for his action in favour of women victims of sexual violence and confessed that he was deeply moved by what we just heard. He also added that the EU is currently working with the government of DRC to launch in the coming months a new programme on this matter worth 20 million euro. The EC has been helping the important work of this hospital since 2004 with close to 5 million euro in humanitarian aid. Dr Mukwege intends to return to the hospital and continue to save the lives and restore the dignity of the thousands of Congolese women who need emergency medical care after falling victims to rape.
