Rwanda : « Notre rôle est de briser ce cercle de violence »

« Le mot pour dire "traumatisme" n'existait pas au Rwanda avant le génocide des Tutsis », explique Augustin Nziguheba, psychologue et coordonnateur technique des projets de santé mentale de Handicap International. « Les problèmes de santé mentale causés par le stress post-traumatique lié au génocide ont de graves répercussions sur la société. Ils ont une incidence sur les difficultés rencontrées au sein même de la famille, sur l'augmentation des pratiques sexuelles à risque, sur les phénomènes de violence et sur l'incapacité à trouver du travail...

Back to Rwanda

Report
IRIN

GOMA, 11 April 2014 (IRIN) - The Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) has long been one of the most significant armed groups active in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where it has been based ever since its founders fled neighbouring Rwanda after playing a key role in the 1994 genocide.

Over the years, thousands of FDLR members and their dependants have surrendered to the UN mission in DRC (MONUSCO), and returned to Rwanda.

Combat contre un ennemi invisible en RDC

Report
IRIN

BISHONGERA, 10 avril 2014 (IRIN) - Il est difficile d'identifier les combattants des Forces démocratiques pour la Libération du Rwanda (FDLR), l'un des nombreux groupes armés actifs dans l'est de la République démocratique du Congo (RDC), dont certains leaders ont joué un rôle clé dans le génocide rwandais il y a 20 ans. Ils ne portent ni uniformes ni insignes et ne se distinguent donc pas de la population civile.

Fighting an invisible enemy in DRC

Report
IRIN

BISHONGERA, 9 April 2014 (IRIN) - It is difficult to identify the fighters of the Forces Démocratiques pour la Libération du Rwanda (FDLR), one of the many armed groups active in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), some of whose leaders played a key role in Rwanda’s genocide 20 years ago. Bearing neither uniform nor insignia, they are indistinguishable from the civilian population.

FIDH honours the memory of the victims and survivors of the genocide

20 years ago, first in Kigali and then in the whole country, close to one million Tutsis were the target of mass genocide and moderate Hutus were massacred by the regime of President Habyarimana. On the 20th anniversary of the genocide, FIDH wishes to honour the memory of the victims and survivors of this tragedy. FIDH also calls on Rwandan authorities and the international community to pursue the fight against impunity for its alleged perpetrators and to ensure that such madness will never happen again, in particular by supporting democracy and human rights.

La Croix-Rouge auprès des orphelins du génocide

Ce 7 avril 2014, le Rwanda et la communauté internationale se recueille et se souvient. Il y a 20 ans, débutait le génocide. Pendant 100 jours, les Rwandais vont vivre l’horreur: 800.000 Rwandais massacrés, des milliers de femmes victimes de violences sexuelles, plus d’un million d’orphelins. Aujourd’hui, bien qu’unis dans leurs efforts pour maintenir une paix durement gagnée, les Rwandais restent meurtris par les atrocités vécues. Les blessures, physiques et psychologiques, d’il y a 20 ans guérissent lentement. C’est tout un pays qui se relève.
