The Rwandan Community in the UK invites you to the 24th memorial Service for the Rwandan Genocide and other crimes against Humanity committed in Rwanda and in the Great Lakes Region.
Venue: Address: Elford Pl W, Leeds LS8 5QD, UK
Time: Saturday the 14th April 2018@12:00 PM
Why? The 1994 genocide claimed the lives of about one million Rwandans. It was preceded and followed by mass killings and crimes against humanity both in Rwanda and in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In DRC alone, about 6 million souls were killed. Till today, the Rwandan community is divided along ethnic lines and reconciliation is still a remote dream. Rwandans continue to be persecuted, imprisoned, tortured and killed because of their opinions. The Rwandan Community in the UK is happy to invite you to this event where Hutus, Tutsis and Twas will be free to express their feelings about our tragic history and pray together. We can only truly give respect to our loved ones whose lives were sacrificed during those horrendous events by standing together and saying, “Never Again”. Please come and support us.
The prayers will be followed by a workshop to reflect on how Rwandans can work together with support from the International Community to achieve peace and long lasting reconciliation both with themselves and with neighbours of Rwanda.
“And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.” (Mark 11:25)
