Commemoration of the genocide against the tutsis, 2014 – ActionAid International, Rwanda

In 1994 up to a million people in Rwanda were killed over 100 days, approximately 20 per cent of Rwanda’s population, in the genocide against the Tutsis. Twenty years on and Rwanda has made remarkable progress in coming to terms with its past, but the scars of the past remain. These are some of the stories I wrote:

I never imagined it would be a close relative who would cause my children’d death

Everyone at that meeting never came back – I lost four children

We are all single mothers, together we are strong

I don’t know how I would afford my medicine without the cooperative and ActionAid
