More than 30 members of the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) in Rwanda have toured the Kigali Genocide Memorial exhibition to learn more about the Genocide against Tutsi as well as what is being done to fight genocide ideology.

KOICA has a mission of addressing global development issues by pursing global harmony and facilitating the sustainable social economic development of their partner countries. The agency aims to reduce poverty and improve quality of life in developing countries.

One of the delegation, Lee Myungshya, said the memorial is very well done and accurately portrays what happened in 1994. He said it shows the whole world the reality of the Genocide against the Tutsi and should be a call to all leaders to take serious measures to ensure genocide never happens again, in Rwanda or elsewhere.

“Some people around the world might not understand the history of the Genocide in Rwanda or try to minimise it, but whoever has come to visit the memorial will never doubt the brutality and attempt to totally wipe out the Tutsi in Rwanda. This is why KOICA also contributed to make sure the word knows the truth of what happened in 1994,” Lee said.

The Korea International Cooperation Agency contributed to the construction of the new entrance at the Kigali Genocide Memorial, which was formally opened in 2015. The memorial and Aegis Trust are very grateful for the support of KOICA and look forward to the continued partnership.
