A former American envoy to Cambodia will Thursday be honoured in Kigali for confronting genocide and promoting humanity.
Ambassador Kenneth M. Quinn will receive the Steven Krulis Champion of Humanity Distinguished Service Award from Aegis Trust, an organisation dedicated to preventing future genocides and promoting humanity globally.
The award has previously been given once – in 2002 – to Romeo Dallaire, the retired Canadian Army General, who was the force commander of a UN mission in Rwanda during the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.
