DR MUKWEGE, THE MAN WHO SAVES WOMEN

Angèle Diabang

In Panzi, in the Kivu province ( Democratic Republic of Congo), the doctor Denis Mukwege has created a hospital where victims of wartime sexual violences are taken in and get reconstructive surgery. The hospital provides them with medical care but also gives them moral support to rebuild their economic and civic lives. All the executive managers in the hospital are congolese women. The victims words and Dr Mukwege and his team’s actions, here in Congo and worldwide, are the substance of the film, denouncing sexual barbarism. This barbarism tens of thousands of women suffer from is not only the curse of Africa, but of a war whose interest is not only local. The film also shows us the tough fight of the victims and their courage in rebuilding their life despite their past.
