We are committed to supporting concrete actions in favour of the rehabilitation of survivors of sexual violence. 100% of profits from orders of the I Believe Them t-shirt will be donated to the Panzi Hospital, in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo. Feministee will also donate 15% of profits from all other orders to the hospital.
Founded by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dr Denis Mukwege, the Panzi Hospital has been providing holistic aid to survivors of wartime sexual violence since 1999. Congo’s eastern provinces have been plagued by conflict for more than two decades. The presence of armed groups and high numbers of internal displacement has increased the vulnerability of the population towards different forms of abuse such as sexual violence.
Panzi Hospital offers a safe healing space that supports not only women’s physical healing, but fosters their emotional recovery, helps to rebuild their livelihoods and contributes to the long-term, sustainable restoration of their communities.
