KIGALI | INTEGRAL MISSION | WORLD RELIEF
LIT supports World Relief in it's efforts in partnering with the local church to see Rwanda flourish.
RWANDA has a history of conflict dating back centuries. In 1994, as a part of the Tutsi 10 commandments, the Hutus began a systematic genocide of the Tutsi population. For approximately 100 days over 1 million Tutsi's were brutally murdered in an orchestrated ethnic cleansing. However this is only one of the problems Rwanda faces today.
-65% of the population lives below the poverty line.
-The AIDS pandemic, is ravaging lives and has a significant impact on the country, increasingly impoverishing those affected by the virus. In Rwanda, the overall prevalence rate among adults is 3% and it is estimated that one in four adults has HIV in Kigali. The number of orphans--from AIDS as well as other causes--is also large and requires a compassionate response.
