Psychological Care after Sexual Violence
WarTrauma congratulates our partner Dr. Denis Mukwege with the Nobel Peace Prize. Dr. Mukwege works in Bukavu, East-Congo, where he has been helping victims of sexual violence for over twenty years.
We support his Panzi Hospital by strengthening their psychological support, providing training to Panzi staff to improve their work with children and adolescents who have been confronted with sexual violence, as a victim, witness or, for example, because they were born out of rape. In addition, we are now developing a project to support the social workers themselves, so they can better cope with the many horrible stories they hear every day.
