The Umuhoza Project

Bringing Comfort And Hope To The Broken And Hurting

‘The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’
Psalm 34:18
In 1994 over 100 days an estimated over 1 million Tutsis died in a horrific genocide in Rwanda. While the nation is rebuilding and healing the legacy of the events of 1994 linger.
Over the last decade I have felt compelled by God to travel with survivors on their journey to emotional wholeness using my counselling skills and thus the Umuhoza Project was born.
Every year in April there is an official time of mourning for the genocide. Unfortunately although this is a time of remembrance, forgiveness and reflection on progress , those who have not recovered from the debilitating effects of trauma are re-traumatized during the period. For this reason and many more there is an ongoing journey of healing in Rwanda
