... of thousands of handicapped , vulnerable and traumatized people. So a plan had to be out in place to deal with a highly divided and suspicious population. This group provided some structure for doing that. On an individual level, it provided the resources for healing, repentance and forgiveness. Our next stop is the. Rwandan Board of Education.
