charity: water September Campaign for Rwanda

This September, charity: water is celebrating its birthday by bringing water to everyone in one country–Rwanda. The Rwandan people overcame the darkest time in their history, and together, rebuilt their nation. Now, they’re working to give clean water to everyone. Help charity: water raise $1.7 million to give clean water to every community in the Shyorongi and Ngoma sectors of Rwanda.

The people of Rwanda are rewriting their story. And it starts with clean water for everyone. Learn more and donate at www.charitywater.org/september/.

Intended Consequences

In 2008 MediaStorm produced Intended Consequences with photojournalist Jonathan Torgovnik on the plight and strength of women who bore children as a result of rape during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide.

In Rwanda, in 1994, Hutu militia committed a bloody genocide, murdering one million Tutsis. Many of the Tutsi women were spared, only to be held captive and repeatedly raped. Many became pregnant. Intended Consequences tells their stories. See the project at http://mediastorm.com/publication/intended-consequences
