A MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE OF RWANDA
From Rev. Dr. Jonathan L. Weaver
Founder & president of the Pan African Collective
PAN AFRICAN COLLECTIVE
TO THE RWANDAN COMMUNITY AROUND THE WORLD
Wednesday, April 6, 2022
On behalf of the members, friends and board of directors of the Pan African Collective, Inc., (www.panafricancollective.org), I take this opportunity to express our solidarity with the people of Rwanda during this time of the 28th commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, Kwibuka 28: Remember-Unite-Renew. We stand in partnership, collaboration and cooperation with you regarding the need for greater understanding and unity to be manifested and to prevail among people around the world. We also applaud you for your efforts of peacemaking and reconciliation toward each other that are examples for others to follow in the community of nations worldwide.
I along with other Pan African Collective (PAC) members and friends have developed significant relationships with people of Rwanda since our first visit to the country in 2010. Since then we have worked with many local organizations, faith leaders and local government officials, partnering with them to promote health care in rural areas, to provide humanitarian assistance to vulnerable families during the outbreak of the corona virus in 2020, to assist others at the time of the 2021 earthquakes in the Rubavu District area, and starting last year, to empower families through a livestock donation program during the commemoration period. As a result of the relationships that have been forged with the Rwandan people, we within the PAC have become far more effective as global citizens and more specifically we delight in sharing with other Americans the transformation that has taken place in Rwanda, largely due to the determination and resilience of its citizens. In fact we are also pleased to work closely with the Rwandan community in the Washington, DC area and the staff at the Embassy Of Rwanda in The United States.
To the Rwandan people, we wish to congratulate and commend you for the outstanding changes that have taken place since 1994 in the Land of a Thousand Hills. We are humbled and exceptionally proud to be connected to you. We look forward to building even greater bonds between us in the future. It is our firm belief that because of your spirit of excellence, that for you, the best is yet to come.
