Rwanda 2015 by Susan Stewart T


his was my fifth trip to Rwanda, a country that I have grown to love.


As it had been 5 years since my last trip I was expecting to see many changes.


The team I was with consisted of Scots, English, Irish, American and Rwandan, so quite a diverse range of people and characters but glad to say we all bonded very quickly.


We were all staying at The Good News Guest House, which was run by Ben Kayumba, whom I have known since my first visit in 2007. This was our home for the next 2 weeks and it was a place where we prayed, laughed, cried and spent time with many Rwandan friends. It was our refuge.


Our itinerary was full with many visits to different projects and I had the privilege to distribute mosquito nets for the project that Karen Rennie and myself run 'Operation Net' within Comfort Rwanda.


Operation Net 26


It was heart breaking to visit two young girls (12 and 13 years old) who had been raped and were pregnant. The 13year old had just given birth 2 months ago and when we arrived at her home she was sleeping on the concrete floor with her baby. She literally had nothing. Thankfully the team had taken a bed, mattress, covers, baby clothes etc to help her be more comfortable and we provided a mosquito net. We spent a few days with this beautiful girl who was only a child herself and we could see that she had bonded and loved her baby very much.
