On June 1st, I attended the closing ceremony of the 30th annual commemoration of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Quite moving, I must say, especially the massive participation of children to whom elders have passed on the duty to remember and honour the loved ones who were so brutally massacred….Bravo to the Humura team for organizing a solid program, both in person and online.
