Burundi - Ruyigi - Maggy in the local hospital with her orphans distributing blankets and medicines
Maggy in the local hospital with her orphans distributing blankets and medicines. The hospital does receive aid from MSF (Medecins sans Frontieres), but the doctors usually sell the drugs to supplement their income..During the genocide in 1994, 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'
