24.10.1993 ? 24.10.2021

On October 25, 2021, Maison Shalom blew out its 28th candle and celebrated once again the victory of love. The founder Marguerite Barankitse, the beneficiaries, the staff of Maison Shalom as well as the guests had their hearts filled with gratitude to God and to Maison Shalom for all that has been accomplished during these 28 years. Two documentaries were shown, reminding all those present that hate will never have the last word. Some of the beneficiaries shared their testimonies of how they have stayed on their feet despite difficult life circumstances thanks to the help of Maison Shalom. Founder Marguerite Barankitse announced that from now on Maison Shalom will be called SHALOM HOUSE INTERNATIONAL and reminded that we will continue to celebrate the Victory of Love wherever we go. "Maison Shalom is not only for Burundians, our dear Congolese come and you also Rwandans here is Home". Marguerite Barankitse
