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


A young boy, whose parents died in the 1994 genocide, sleeps with his friends on the street in Kigali. Today thousands of children live on the streets of Kigali and are often at risk of violence and arbitrary arrest by law enforcement agents. Girls living on the streets are frequent victims of sexual violence. © UNICEF/HQ98-0110/Giacomo Pirozzi
