That was indeed a great day for Maggy, Maison Shalom and Burundi, of course. 

In this Benaroya hall, through Washington, more or less 2500 persons were straight witnessing “The victory of love over hatred”, says Maggy.

A great day for millions of persons in need, and vulnerable Burundians, dsc03341.jpgthousands miles away from this beautiful city of Seattle. dsc03431.jpg

“Praised be the Lord, our prayers have been heard. God is great”, said Maggy. 

BARANKITSE started her speech by a very short, but touching story of Burundian street children, especially in Bujumbura, the capital city of Burundi, and through the hall country, and this, since 1994.

A great day for millions of persons in need, and vulnerable Burundians, thousands miles away from this beautiful city of Seattle. 

“Praised be the Lord, our prayers have been heard. God is great”, said Maggy. 

BARANKITSE started her speech by a very short, but touching story of Burundian street children, especially in Bujumbura, the capital city of Burundi, and through the hall country, and this, since 1994. 

“I had to travel to Germany for a surgical operation of one of the orphans, victim of the civil atrocities”. Maggy added, 

We had to stop over in Bujumbura to catch the flight the following day.” 

Continuing, “you cannot believe me if I tell you that I could not find a host family just for one night. I had no money to pay for a room in the hotel.” 

And then, these street children saw Maggy wandering in “their home”, the streets. Some of them recognized BARANKITSE. 

When the sun set down, “They used to welcome me at the Independence square, in the open air, where they usually stay for the night.” Sitting down with them under the trees, warming up around a fire, sharing bread, discussing and joking, this was a kind of wild life, Maggy experienced. 

  

To the “Opus Prize” organizers, Maggy thanked them so much “for brightening not only days, but years” for many thousands of vulnerable people in Burundi. 

The other issued raised by Maggy, talking about Burundi, was the serious challenges of extreme poverty, HIV and all kinds of illnesses, such as Malaria. 

“People are suffering from illiteracy, displacement, human rights abuses, and so on and so forth.” 

Maggy never got tired to thank all the “ Beranoya Hall”  for that valuable support, for joining in the fight against poverty, for the welfare and that dignity of the vulnerable people. 

I call upon you all, to take this appeal far beyond Seattle. The entire world should join in the efforts to eradicate poverty, which is the root cause of all the problems.” Quite understandable for everyone who knows Burundi such as Maggy BARANKITSE,  “It is unacceptable that people are still dying from hunger, in complete indifference of rich people and rich countries. It is unacceptable that children in Burundi are born with AIDS, while they could be protected during their mothers’ pregnancy.” 

And the Beranoya hall untirednessly listened  to Marguerite BARANKITSE. I call upon the international community, to follow closely what is going on in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.” 

According to the Great Lakes Region, Burundi, DRC and Rwanda, as someone who is working so much for its peace, “INUKA” organization in Goma is the loudly talking proof, she is to stay optimistic. “There will be no durable peace in the Great Lakes region, if the international community remains becomes proactive for the peace there.” “I had to travel to Germany for a surgical operation of one of the orphans, victim of the civil atrocities”. Maggy added,
