Jeffrey Gettleman Awarded Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting!


New York Times East Africa bureau chief Jeffrey Gettleman was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for his "vivid reports, often at personal peril, on famine and conflict in East Africa, a neglected but increasingly strategic part of the world."

V-Day has worked with Jeffrey in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 2007. He has reported extensively on the violence facing women and girls in Eastern DRC, and the work being done on the ground and at City of Joy to end the violence. V-Day is so proud of the work that he has done and this new recognition that he so rightfully deserves!

Check out some of Jeffrey's past articles on the women of Congo and City of Joy!
