Welcome Neighbor Rome invites you to a unique opportunity on Friday, May 12th at 10 am in Olgiata for a presentation by exclusive guest speaker Marie Christine Nibagwire,survivor of the Rwandan Genocide of 1994   where she lost many members of her family, her friends, her home, her hope even her dreams.  She arrived in the U.K in 1998, after seeking asylum in three other different countries without success.

In September 2000, while working as a Procurement Manager in a train company in London, she had a  calling   to reach out to other refugees, survivors of the Genocide of Rwanda who had arrived in different countries of 
West Europe, Canada, USA even those whom she left in different slums or refugee camps in Africa.  Those refugees were still bleeding, still traumatised by the killings, rapes and all atrocities they witnessed.  She made it her goal to bring the  Lord's message that  He  wanted to heal them, comfort them and let them know that He would always be their "Safe refuge".

In 2001, Marie-Christine resigned from her job and founded Saferefugerwanda, taking a message from God as the true Saferefuge to Refugees.  God has then been healing many refugees who testify about the healing power of God.

Marie-Christine is a qualified mentor and counsellor for refugees and her work was recognised with a "Woman on the Move Award", which she received in March 2016 from UNHCR and Migrants Organise, an organisation that welcome refugees in the U.K.

Marie-Christine, though an accountant by profession, she also worked with different humanitarian organisations working with refugees like the International Committee of the Red Cross, UNHCR and she is a member of "PHAP"Professional in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection" based in Geneva Switzerland.

Marie-Christine is also a Church of England Minister (LLM), serving the Diocese of London, in the leadership team of Holy Trinity Brompton.

She is a single mother of three children: Natalie (25 years old), Peter Caleb (11 years old) and Ephraima Favour (9 years old).
