Dr. Denis Mukwege on the Skavlan Talkshow in Scandinavia.
Congratulations to Dr. Denis Mukwege who won the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 2014.
“Dr. Mukwege is a man of great courage and integrity,” said Inamori Center Director Shannon E. French.
“The problems he addresses evoke such feelings of horror that most people avoid even thinking of them. Dr. Mukwege has helped women all over the world by refusing to turn away and demanding instead that the world confront the issue of sexual violence. He shows compassion and respect for human dignity by both treating and empowering women.”
Dr Mukwege has been nominated for the European Parliament’s 2014 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought!
The award ceremony will take place in Strasbourg on November 26, 2014.
