DR Congo Papal Visit: Nobel Peace Laureate Comments

In an interview with Vatican News Friday, December 9 shortly after an audience with Pope Francis, Mr. Mukwege, a Congolese physician known for his service of offering healthcare to victims of sexual violence, recalled his encounter with the Holy Father and spoke about the ongoing crisis in the Central African nation. 

“This visit was for me a special grace, an honor to have met a man of faith, a man of peace, a person who works for peace, justice, and inclusion throughout the world and in the particular context today with multiple crises,” he has been quoted as saying. 

The rescheduled visit of Pope Francis to DRC, the Congolese physician said, is “a strong signal” that demonstrates the Holy Father’s solidarity with “our people plunged into conflict for more than 25 years.”
