Rape and sexual slavery are routinely practiced by armed groups with an ever-increasing number of victims, leading over time to the breakdown of family and social models. For affected women, access to essential services and legal intervention is limited; support for victims, virtually non-existent. And with so many perpetrators going unpunished, the violence spreads. To combat this phenomenon, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dr. Denis Mukwege pioneered the 4-pillar “one-stop treatment center,” based on medical, psychological, legal, and socio-economic support. Since 2017, Fondation Pierre Fabre has worked with victims using this principle, at the rural hospital in Bulenga, DRC.
