QUNO was joined by Pastor Elie Nahimana, the Administrative Coordinator of the Healing and Rebuilding Our Communities (HROC) programme in Burundi. Pastor Elie was touring the US, speaking about the trauma healing work that the HROC programme carries out in a variety of communities across the country to prevent further violence. During his time in New York, QUNO organised meetings for him with various UN staff, member state delegates, and other NGOs working on Burundi. His input was valuable as it was an opportunity to hear a different perspective on the current political crisis, and connections were made so that when Pastor Elie returns to Burundi he will have continued contact with UN staff there. QUNO hopes that this will lead to more preventative, peaceful solutions to the current conflict.
