As a prelude to the publication of our Annual Report 2018-19, we feature from it a message from the Chief Executive of Survivors Fund (SURF), Samuel Munderere:
This was a milestone year for Survivors Fund (SURF). We launched our new strategic plan, one that demonstrates our continued commitment to empowering Survivors of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.
By empowering survivors, we contribute to their dignity and transformation of their lives. And unlock their power to change their lives and that of their dependents.
We want to thank our partners and donors, on behalf of the survivors with which we work. Your commitment is transforming communities through empowering survivors.
In reflecting on all we’ve achieved this year, I would like to extend a special thank you to our entire staff and board of trustees, whose dedication, resourcefulness and passion continue to inspire me. And I’d like to recognize especially SURF’s Chair Samantha Hunt for her continuing leadership and support.
The year ahead marks the 25th Anniversary of the Genocide against the Tutsi and we do hope that you will look out for news about Rwanda and survivors, as well as seize any chance to advocate for their cause. Your support is still much needed.
As you read this year’s annual review, I hope you are inspired to join us in continuing to make strides towards empowering survivors of the genocide against the Tutsi. Together, we are creating a world where survivors are empowered and integrated
