Panzi Hospital, supported by the ENGIE Foundation in the renovation and securing of its power supply to lower the energy bill, is known for its vocation to help women survivors of sexual violence. Founded by Dr. Denis Mukwege, Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2018, nicknamed “the man who repairs women”, the reengineering work carried out by the in-house NGO Energy Assistance Belgium, was able to resume last March with the help of local contractors. This will give a new lease of life to this institution. For several months now, Energy Assistance has been investing in terms of analysis and technical and feasibility studies of the Panzi Hospital. After a period of interruption due to the COVID-19, the renovation works have just started.
Energy Assistance is the main contractor for the electricity production and for the internal installation of the renovation of the Operating room of the General Reference Hospital of Panzi. This project supported by the ENGIE Foundation is realized in close collaboration with the team of the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Doctor Mukwege and Professor Cadière.
