Rwanda Visit – Day 4

Today included a visit to the genocide museum. What a sobering place. 250,000 of the nearly one million people killed are buried here.  One theme that came through is that survivors who were betrayed by neighbours, friends, and the church now find it hard to love and trust. YEGO works with women who have been traumatized. We work hard to let them know they are loved and we surround them with a community they can trust.
