OUR ACTIONS

Treating victims of sexual violence at Bulenga Hospital in the DRC
The South Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been a conflict zone since 1999. Many armed groups there have been taking violent action against the civilian population with near impunity, particularly women, using rape as a weapon of war. Founder of the Panzi Hospital in the heart of this region, Dr Denis Mukwege dedicates his life to treating female victims. Since 2018, the Pierre Fabre Foundation has been supporting the replication of this global care model at the Bulenga Hospital. 

Restoring dignity to victims of sexual violence: the work of Dr Denis Mukwege in the DRC.
Since 2018, the Fondation Pierre Fabre has been supporting the work of Denis Mukwege, Nobel Peace Prize winner, in favour of victims of sexual and gender-based violence. In February 2020 he received us at the reference hospital of Panzi in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

SURVIVING THE SUN

Albinism sufferers are one of the most marginalised and vulnerable groups of sub-Saharan Africa, because they are particularly exposed to the risk of skin cancer. Studies estimate that the majority die of skin cancer between the ages of 30 and 40. Fondation Pierre Fabre is working alongside NGO Standing Voice on the development of special care programmes.
