Trócaire thanks Westmeath for helping people of Rwanda

On the 20th anniversary of the beginning of the Rwanda genocide, which began on April 7, 1994, Trócaire has thanked the people of County Westmeath for supporting its work to help survivors strengthen their livelihoods and rebuild peace in their communities in the last two decades.

Twenty years ago, when the genocide took place, church collections were held across the county, which helped Trócaire to raise IR£6m in its emergency appeal for Rwanda. This was at the time, the largest public appeal in the organisation’s history.
