Abstract
- In Rwanda, the humanitarian needs of refugees have not yet been fully covered despite the efforts of the international community. Mortality rates remain unacceptable, says Doctors Without Borders. In the best organized Katale camp, the daily death rate is 25 per 10,000.
- There are also the problems inherent in the return of certain refugees to their villages. Among other things, the growing number of orphans. 6,000 orphans have already been identified in Kigali. Probably approximate estimates.
- In his orphanage, Marc Vaiter, this Frenchman who survived the turmoil of the war and who has already saved more than 300 kids from the massacre, remains worried. The post-war period is difficult: there is no lack of goodwill, and the means are. The children are given some milk and sorghum. The deficiencies are numerous, especially for those who have wandered several weeks between the camps.
- A priority: to prevent dysentery and cholera from setting in. Here as elsewhere, water is lacking. But the real extent of the disaster is psychological. Volunteer and poorly qualified staff try to teach these children again the gestures of a new life, not to mention the future. Despite the limited space, the orphanage does not refuse anyone.
