Democratic Republic of Congo : start of the construction of the new emergency block of the Panzi hospital

21 June 2022

On June 21 2022, our teams in Panzi, Democratic Republic of Congo, laid the first stone of a major rehabilitation project at the General Reference Hospital.

Indeed, a few meters away from the new operating block, our teams started the rehabilitation of the “Emergency” building, along with the building for deliveries and neonatology. The construction should last a little less than a year.

This major project in support of the Hospital, piloted with the Panzi Foundation in partnership with Lux-Development, is funded by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. It was designed to support the holistic model of support for survivors of sexual violence developed by Dr. Mukwege.
