MY NOBEL YEAR – DR. DENIS MUKWEGE – PANZI FOUNDATION
“We all have the power to change the course of history when the beliefs we are fighting for are right.”
– Dr. Denis Mukwege
One year ago, Dr. Mukwege, founder of the Panzi Foundation, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo. Clearly Compliant is honored to work with the Panzi Foundation and we applaud Dr. Mukwege for his outstanding accomplishments.
EXCERPT FROM STATEMENT OF MY NOBEL YEAR
On December 10th of last year, Dr. Denis Mukwege, human rights activist, world-renowned gynecologist, and founder of the Panzi Hospital and Foundation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), accepted the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize in honor of his efforts to end sexual violence as a weapon of war (Panzi Foundation, 2019). He recently shared his accomplishments since then: “I have traveled around the world as part of a global campaign for women’s human rights, justice, and peace. I have witnessed a growing global awareness of the existence and gravity of the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and as a strategy of domination and terror, and even extermination. This recognition is crucial because to tackle a problem, it must first and foremost be recognized. This was not the case in the past, so it’s a significant change.”
