Title: Beauty for Ashes
Location: Rwanda
  

In April of 1994, a massive genocide took place in Rwanda that left many children orphaned and families destroyed. In years that followed the government of Rwanda, alongside many different outside organizations and programs worked tirelessly to reconcile, restore and rebuild what was left from the devastation.
As part of both Initiatives, Kibuye Hospital staff, along with two student nurses from Biola University, traveled to the outskirts of Rwanda to a refugee camp boarding on The Democratic Republic of the Congo. Hospital staff would take weekly trips through treacherous hills and muddy streets to reach the camp to provide healthcare to those desperately in need. This boy fought his way to the front of the fence to see us arrive.
