Damascène: "After the genocide, I got involved in humanitarian work"

Damascène, FXB manager

His father was chief of the Tseza village before the independence.

When he was little he listened to the requests of the peasants who came to see his father in the courtyard. Already back then, he thought about how to help them.

The genocide started on his village’s hill. And after his father’s death, the peasants continued to come to their homes to present their grievances.

“I saw the problems they were facing, which were related to overpopulation, the erosion of the soil and the poverty of the land”. It was then that he began to get involved in a technical school that had been looted by the Ugandans, and continued his humanitarian work ever since.
