Rwandan refugees. United Republic of Tanzania, 1994
"A baby gazes at his mother, sitting amidst thousands of other Rwandan refugees in a giant encampment near the town of Benako in north-eastern Tanzania. Fleeing genocidal killings in their country in April 1994, some 350,000 Rwandans crossed into Tanzania in less than a week. By the end of that year, some 700,000 Rwandans had been killed, 2 million were refugees and an estimated 100,000 children had become separated from their parents. This national trauma in Rwanda will take generations to heal and continues to be affected by conflicts in surrounding countries."
