Dr. Denis Mukwege selected for 2014 Inamori Ethics Prize
Date:5/21/2014

CLEVELAND, OHIOWhen Dr. Denis Mukwege was growing up in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), he would accompany his father, a Pentecostal minister, on visits to comfort sick people in his community.

The desire to heal those for whom his father prayed inspired a life's devotion to do the same through medicine.

Mukwege, 59, a deeply committed physician and human rights activist, has worked tirelessly with and for women who have suffered excruciatingly traumatic and violent attacks in the name of war.
