The Mukwege Foundation was shocked to learn that in the early morning of June 20th, Valentina Buchok became the victim of an assassination attack and was severely injured. Valentina is a human rights activist and an active member of the Ukrainian survivor network supported by the Mukwege Foundation. Our hearts are with Valentina and her family, friends and other members of the Ukrainian Survivor Network as they help her recuperate. We at the Mukwege Foundation condemn this violence. We support Valentina in her recovery and support the call for an independent investigation and prosecution of those responsible.
