Rwanda's Women - Stories of Courage, Forgiveness and Resilience during the Genocide & the Journey of Rebuilding
Friday 6 March Committee Room A, West Dorset District Council, DT1 1UZ
You are invited to come to a free talk to be given by activist and humanitarian, Carl Wilkens about his experiences of remaining in Rwanda during the genocide of 1994. His actions together with Rwandan colleagues saved the lives of hundreds - including many orphaned children left trapped in the capital.
However Carl’s talk is not really about genocide. It is more about the choices people made, actions people took, courage people showed, and the sacrifices people gave in the face of this atrocity.
FREE Buffet from 12.30pm - 1pm. Talk from 1pm – 2pm
RSVP to Emma Scott – email@example.com / Tel: 01305 252204
Hosted by The South West Dorset Multicultural Network and the Women’s Action Network Dorset (WAND)
