This is a truly touching story how a set of Polaroid snaps unearthed in the offices of Save the Children in Rwanda changed lives.
After the the genocide in 1994, the charity Save the Children photographed Rwandan children across the country who had been orphaned or separated from their families. They then used the snapshots to help reunite the children with family members who could raise them and look after them.
In 2013, Save the Children team came across the archive of thousands of Polaroid photos and hand-written files. This inspired the team to try to trace some of these children as adults and ask them about their memories of that time.
Below is the reaction of one of the kids, Evans, who was eight during the genocide.
I've never had a photo of myself as a youth. But especially to see that Save the Children has come back to visit me all these years later - it's very moving for me. Given that I lived through such a difficult time in my life, seeing this photo reminds me of how far I have come since then. It makes me think about the path I've taken to get where I am today. There was a time in my life where I didn't know if I would live one day to the next, where I felt like I wasn't going to survive - but here I am. Seeing this photo brings back the long journey I've made from then until now.
