We cannot say a happy family while referring to those families without peace, always enduring family conflicts as the routine practice. As the world celebrate peace day, Join Others Rwanda calls upon Rwandans and the world in general to embrace peace by respecting family values and one’s duties.
Each year, the international day of peace is globally observed on 21st September. It was adopted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease fire.
This year, it has been clear than ever that we are not each other’s enemies. Rather, our common enemy is a tireless virus that threatens our health, security and every way of life. COVID-19 has thrown our world into turmoil and forcibly reminded us that what happens in one part of the planet can impact people everywhere.
As we struggle to defeat COVID-19, your voice is more important than ever and most importantly striving to protect our families from any form of gender based violence, preventing family conflicts so as to join our forces in fighting the global pandemic and threats.
The families are invited to unite and share thoughts on how to weather this storm heal our planet or change it for the better starting in their home. Even though the Rwandans and world in general may not be able to stand next to each other, we can still dream together.
The international Day of Peace established in 1981 by the United Nations General and designated as a period of non-violence and cease-fire.
The 2020 global theme for the International Day of Peace is “Shaping Peace Together”. Celebrate the day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of pandemic. Stand together against attempts to use the virus to promote discrimination and hatred.
Since the first case of COVID-19 infected person confirmed on the territory of Rwanda in March 2020, the country recorded a daily increase of cases which led to a total countrywide lockdown with exceptions to vital activities including health facilities and food shops.
Later on, some crucial activities resumed with due cautions to prevent the spread of this global pandemic mainly to frequently clean hands with soap and water or an alcohol based hand saniters, maintaining social distancing, wearing protective mask, avoiding places that convening many people and staying at home when possible.
In 1994, all Rwandan families were in darkness. 26 years later, the country is now full of hope. Join Others Rwandan, believes that if there is no any form of discrimination and genocide ideology among families this cannot happen in the society. We are committed to help families to eradicate any kind of conflict among them.
