Muriel Mac-Seing, Handicap International’s HIV/Protection technical advisor, just came back from a mission in Rwanda in April 2013. She met with Christivine, a young deaf girl and rape survivor. She tells us about her story.
“Christivine is a 14 year old deaf adolescent. She, her parents, twin brother and two sisters are from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the neighbouring country of Rwanda. Since last year, they are now residing in Gisenyi, Rwanda, whereby her father is working and she and her siblings are going to school.
