While we here in our largely safe American lives protest the "war on women" (as we should), an eerily similar yet silent war has been launched on Dr. Dennis Mukwege and the Panzi Foundation.

Dr. Dennis Mukwege has worked diligently on the frontlines to repair and heal Congolese women who have been brutally raped in midst of brutal genocide in Eastern Congo. Tonight he was the victim of an assassination attempt and his security guard was shot dead.


PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. THE CONFLICT IN CONGO MUST END.
