Gloriosa "Glo" Uwimpuhwe

Glo lives alone with her two children in Kigali. She works for the US Peace Corps and I was lucky enough to meet with her at her home when I last visited Rwanda. Her story is something special, although, as she says, she considers herself amongst the lucky once. I will write up her full story later, and post it here. In the meantime, here is an image where she shows me photographs of her family. Her adopted brother is missing in this photo though. But him as well as all of the central people in this photograph, 7 in total, were killed in the beginning of April 1994.
