The woman sitting is Mukamugema Rahabu. She is pictured with two of her daughters and her grandchild.

I remember thinking that my daughter and her baby were dead when I waited for them at the Rwandan border. I was with my two other daughters, but my eldest daughter and only grandchild became separated from us. The next day we were reunited in Rwanda’s Nkamira transit centre. It was one of the longest nights of my life,” says Mukamugema.
