Genocide survivor to speak at Milligan
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (Jan. 28, 2009) – Rwandan genocide survivor Damas Dukundane will speak at Milligan College on Tuesday, Feb. 3, at 11 a.m. in Seeger Memorial Chapel.
The 25-year-old Rwandan native is a member of the minority group who were persecuted during the 1994 genocide. Over the course of three months a million Rwandans were killed by Hutu militia. Dukundane was 11 years old when the genocide happened. While he managed to survive, most of his family did not.
Dukundane currently is studying medicine at the National University of Rwanda with hopes of becoming a family physician and practicing in a village where many people are deprived of medical care.
The Feb. 3 lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, call Nathan Flora, campus minister, at 423.461.8748.
