Long-term tragedy versus short-term response

Date of publication: September 8, 2019

Abstract:

The 2019 marks 25 years since the horrific genocide in Rwanda. SURF Survivors Fund, the charity set up to help survivors of the genocide, were well aware of the challenges this milestone presented. Rwanda still has huge and immediate needs - SURF works to enable survivors to finish interrupted education, to repair family homes which have deteriorated over time, to help widows who still carry the physical and psychological scars of the events of 1994. Yet the corollary of this was a great sense of responsibility on the shoulders of the charity's management. How to best communicate the scale and depth of the current need to the contemporary audience - despite the distance in a time of a quarter of a century?
