Burundi - Ruyigi - An orphan boy of Burundi's ethnic conflict with a torn shirt
An orphan boy of Burundi's ethnic conflict with a torn shirt. He lives in Shalom House that was founded by Marguerite Barankitse (known as the 'Angel of Burundi') in 1994. During the genocide, Barankitse, at great personal risk, managed to save 25 orphans, Hutu, Tutsi and Twa and built a home for them. Currently, she has helped more than 10,000 orphans and separated children who can grow up in an "extended adopted family" in security, education and love. Burundi now has many 'child headed households'
