We recently re-opened an incredible archive at our office in Kigali, Rwanda.
Our team unearthed thousands of Polaroid images, documenting children whose lives – in 1994 – were changed forever.
The photographs – a faded moment in time, some damaged by weather and age – and the hand-written notes which accompany them are not just documentation of a generation ravaged by a bloody and brutal genocide.
They also played a vital part in the healing process, which saw families brought back together in the months and years following the conflict.
