Rwanda

In 1994, it was estimated that 800,000 people were killed during the Rwandan Genocide. With 20 percent of the population murdered, Rwandan communities struggled in mourning and confusion. Currently, Food for the Hungry (FH) is helping Rwandan communities rebuild their lives and create trust between groups. Click on icons to see how FH is working with Rwandan communities.
