At times when I hear myself grumble about my coffee not being the right taste or temperature, my mind goes back to this smiling girl and to her story…
After months of living in terror, running from prosecution by militias, escaping bullets, rape, sickness and capture, this Rwandan child arrived in a UNICEF supported medical clinic in Goma(Democratic Republic of Congo) on the Rwanda border. She receives milk in this orange cup and still has energy to flash me a heartfelt smile from her beautiful face and eyes heavy with exhaustion.
For the month of April I will share stories and images from a live changing journey into war-torn Congo.
All photos were taken in October of 2009.
