Dr MukwegeAPF2015_Thierry-Michel02

Dr Mukwege is internationally known as the man who mended thousands of women who were raped during the 20 years of conflict in the east of Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. Dr Mukwege is fighting endlessly against these atrocities, and also denouncing the rapists’ impunity. After receiving death threats, the pastor doctor now lives cloistered in his Bukavu hospital, under the protection of peacekeepers. However, it is no longer only his struggle. At his side are the women whom he helped repair their physical strength and find their dignity. Thanks to him, they are now the activitits seeking justice and peace.
