Sven Torfinn

Kigali, Rwanda

Claudette Mukarumanzi with one of her four children in their house donated by the Rwandan government. During the 1994 genocide, at the age of 13, Claudette Mukarumanzi and thousands of other Tutsis had sought refuge in the church of Nyamata when Hutu neighbours came to slaughter them. Speared and clubbed, Claudette survived by playing dead. Despite government help the family have no land and survive on the equivalent of a dollar a day from her husband's hairdressing work.
