Emmanuel Kwizera – Hope Rising: A Survivor’s Story

In this special episode of Bleeding Daylight, I take listeners on a journey back 30 years to a dark period in Rwandan history. I speak with Emmanuel Kwizera, a survivor of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Orphaned at just five years old, Emmanuel shares his harrowing story of loss, resilience, and hope.

Despite enduring unimaginable tragedy, Emmanuel found solace through Compassion International at his local church. Now a partnership facilitator with Compassion, Emmanuel works to support local churches and advocate for children in poverty. Through his inspiring journey, listeners are reminded of the power of forgiveness, the importance of sponsorship, and the transformational impact of Christ’s love. This compelling conversation shines a light on both the darkness of the past and the hope for a brighter future.
