Kenyan and Rwandan Doctors visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial


A delegation of doctors from Kenya, along with the assembly of doctors’ staff in Rwanda, visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial to remember the victims of 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

the Group began their visit by laying wreaths on the mass graves, which are the final resting place for over 250’000 victims of the Genocide. They then visited the memorial’s exhibition to learn about the history of the Genocide and the importance of fighting Genocide ideology.

“Rwanda is not only known as a country that suffered from the Genocide, but for different achievements. It is admirable that Rwandans have joined their hands for the reconstruction of the country. However, we should not watch when our neighbors are facing any problems, but we should work together to resolve it quickly. So, we have come here in order to continue learning from Rwandans,” Doctor Ellie Opot, delegate from Kenya.

The delegation concluded their visit making a generous donating to the memorial. The donation will be used to help sustain the Kigali Genocide Memorial.
