In 1994, over the course of 100 days between the months of April and July approximately 1 million people were killed. This equates to 6 men, women and children every minute! It is reported that up to half a million women were sexually assaulted, 2 million people fled the country and 75,000 children were left without either one or both parents. It is a horror on a scale that has never been seen before in human history. The truly frightening element of this is that it was neighbours turning on neighbours and family turning on family.

25 years on, the people of Rwanda are still working to rebuild their lives and our help, supported by your generosity, is invaluable as it gives people a purpose and a means of providing for their families. A trauma of this magnitude has an impact on the people affected by it for generations to come and they will continue to need help and support for many years.

This campaign to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide hopes to raise money to allow us to send over an Ark filled with animals and supplies at the end of the year. For many of us we were too young to be able to help back in 1994 but that is not the case now. Please show your support for the people of Rwanda and donate now. Thank you.
