Kwibuka 30

As we prepare to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda (kwibuka30) we ask you to take a moment to pause and reflect on the lives lost in 1994, as well as the survivors who endure the consequences today.

The commemoration officially begins today, on 7th April. The day is marked as the UN International Day of Reflection on the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. There are a number of events to mark the commemoration, in the UKUS and Internationally

The remembrance every year is particularly poignant, as we continue to keep the memory of survivors alive 30 years on from the genocide. As the official site for the commemoration notes:

“Kwibuka30 marks a generational cycle since the Genocide was put to an end. It is a time to reflect on Rwanda’s journey of rebuilding strength, resilience, and unity. It now falls to new generations to sustain and carry forward this progress, adapting to today’s global challenges to achieve our aspirations.”

Survivors Fund (SURF) continues to work and support survivors across Rwanda to rebuild their lives, and to adapt to these challenges, through our programmes which still extend from housing to healthcare, education to entrepreneurship. That is only possible through your continuing support. So thank you.  

Our thoughts are with the survivors over the commemoration period ahead, and we wish them continuing strength over the weeks ahead.
