Father Vjeko Curic

You can outdistance that which is running after you, but not what is running inside you.
-Rwandan proverb

"Vjeko was a very generous man. That's why they
headed for his parish from all the surrounding
communes during the genocide."

Father Vjeko Curic was a Bosnian meber of the
Franciscan order. He came to live in Rwanda in 1983,
and he lived there for the remainder of his life. It was
here that he made his true impact.
