Rwanda Genocide Survivor Shares Her Harrowing Story
On Tuesday, October 30 from 11am-1pm, Seton Catholic Prep in collaboration with The City of Chandler and The Chandler Unified School District proudly present Immaculee Ilibagiza who survived the 1994 Rwanda genocide.
Over 800,000 Tutsis (Rwanda’s minority tribe) were slaughtered by the Hutus (Rwanda’s majority tribe) in 100 days. Immaculee and 6 other women hid in a 3ft x 4ft bathroom for 91 days in the home of a Hutus minister as Hutus killers hunted for them.
Immaculee’s personal mission is to make sure no one forgets what happened in Rwanda in order to prevent future atrocities and massacres from happening.
Tickets are just $35 and can purchased at http://www.chandlercenter.org or by calling the box office at 480-782-2680. This event is a fundraiser that includes a light buffet lunch from 11:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. provided by Serrano’s Mexican Restaurant and Floridino’s.
