The United Nations has labelled today the International Day of Reflection on the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, marking a day to recognise the scars of losses.

Alongside his wife Jeannette, Rwandan President Paul Kagame lit the flame of hope at the Kigali Genocide Memorial, where the remains of 250,000 victims are buried.

It is estimated that close to a million people died in the 1994 genocide, which to this day, remains a painful scar for Rwandan people.

This year, voices from different persons in their respective positions have taken a moment to mourn Rwanda’s loss. From the United Nations to the Arsenal football club along with PSG, it was a unique remembrance to show the importance of life and protecting humanity.
