Remembering Rwanda 25 Years Later

"On the 25th anniversary, the country will mourn for 100 days to symbolize the length of the massacre that took about 800,000 lives." Remembering Rwanda 25 Years On

Sometimes In April 

1 Million lives taken. Innumerable Women and Girls survivors left to live and many eventually die from HIV and or AIDS due to the systematic rape/sex trafficking by Hutu militia during the Rwandan genocide. Two-thirds of a sample of 1,200  genocide widows tested positive for HIV. The infection rates in rural areas more than doubled after the genocide. There is no data on the number of victims who died from AIDS after 1994 who had contracted the disease from having been raped during the genocide. An estimated 250,000 to 500,000 women and girls were raped. Innumerable survivors, refugees, orphaned, etc. Never again we always say but yet it happens all over again in another place.
