World Vision Rwanda commemorates the Genocide against the Tutsi at Kigali Genocide Memorial

Posted in News

A group of directors and employees of World Vision Rwanda visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial to pay respect to the victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, and learn more about the Genocide history.

They arrived at the Memorial after providing 10 households survivors of the Genocide with food and clothes. At the Memorial the group laid wreaths on the burial place, a final resting place for more than 250,000 victims of the Genocide, and toured the memorial’s exhibition to learn more about the causes and consequences of the Genocide.

Sharing his impressions after the visit, George Gitau, World Vision Rwanda Country Director, said:

“This memorial is a touching place to visit. I saw where a poor governance can lead to. I hope that this will never happen again. Also I call upon everyone to visit this place so they can learn from the terrible history, and understand the consequences of bad leadership and how Rwanda rebuilt itself after the Genocide”

.

To conclude their commemoration event, Mr. George Gitau thanked the guides and the Kigali Genocide Memorial team for the event well organised and urged everyone to recommit to the Never again.

“Thank you for taking us on tour, I highly appreciate your efforts in teaching the world about the history and your contribution to the reconstruction of this nation. I also urge everyone to recommit to Never again,”

George said.
