Lasting Wounds: Consequences of Genocide and War on Rwanda’s Children


A young child carries another, too weak to walk, at an orphanage near Goma in July 1994. Aid agencies registered more than 120,000 unaccompanied children in the aftermath of the genocide. Experts estimate that as many as 400,000 orphans live a precarious existence in Rwanda, many suffering abuse and exploitation on a daily basis. © 1994 Corinne Dufka
