Together, the UN, Development Partners are working hand in hand with the Government of Rwanda in COVID19 response for the well-being of all residents of Rwanda. Preventing further spread of COVID-19 is a shared responsibility for us all. “We are in this together – and we will get through this together” – UN Secretary General.

As always, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Government of Rwanda and all our esteemed partners, and all my UN colleagues, for all the efforts you make every day for this country, its people leaving no one behind and for our UN family.
Turi kumwe! We are together! This message of togetherness, solidarity and compassion is more relevant in this very challenging time for mankind. Our humanity is tested. However, I have the strong conviction that we shall overcome! Together!
