Deo Niyizonkiza: Healing What Remains

Oct 8, 2020-- "A young man arrives in the Big City with two hundred dollars in his pocket, no English at all, and memories of horror so fresh that he sometimes confuses past and present. When Deo first told me about his beginnings in New York, I had a simple thought: "I would not have survived." And then, two years later, he enrolls in an Ivy League university." In his bestselling book, 'Strength in What Remains' Tracy Kidder shares more about Deo -- who survived civil war in Burundi, narrowly escaped genocide in Rwanda, and is now the founder and director of a world-class, community-driven medical clinic in his native country. Read an excerpt from Kidder's book here. (2197 reads)
