Interview with Allison Alley, President Elect, Compassion Canada

April 7th has been set aside by the United Nations as the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Rwandan Genocide.  To commemorate this important day, please join us, and Compassion Canada, in recognizing the incredible reconciliation that has taken place in this nation, through the grace of Jesus and the power of forgiveness.

It’s been 25 years since the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, and though time has passed, the people of Rwanda will never be the same. The genocide was started in April of 1994 by Hutu nationalists in the capital of Kigali. For 100 days, Hutu militias took up arms against the Tutsis. More than 800,000 people were slaughtered during those 100 days. The people of Rwanda will always carry with them the deep loss and scars the genocide left behind.

But, love has since been on the move.
