Burundi - Ruyigi - a Tutsi whose parents were killed in front of her, carries and cares for Elosh
In the afternoon light, Lysette (12), a Tutsi whose parents were killed in front of her, carries and cares for Elosh (L), a Hutu baby. Both victims of Burundi's ethnic violence, they now live at the orphanage and home called Shalom House 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.
