Dominique, born 1991

Bihonda Dominique arrived at the Imbabazi on May 6th, 1998 at age 7. He was brought to the orphanage by Roberto Mauri of Doctors Without Borders. He told him that he saw both of his parents killed with machetes at Byumba.

He left Byumba alone in a taxi and arrived in Ruhengeri where soldiers picked him up. Seeing Roberto Mauri’s MSF car they asked him to take him to Gisenyi, and then to me. Poor little boy – for nearly 6 months he never smiled.
Now he is a good student and is at the Kanzenze Secondary School.
