Above is a video interview with Emilienne Mukansoro, a genocide survivor and a trauma counselor with IBUKA who works with women who have experienced sexual violence. Emilienne’s story is difficult to listen to, but her experience as a survivor has shaped who she is and what she does today. After the interview, Emilienne told me that she thinks peer-support is a wonderful way to heal the wounds of survivors, both those who are suffering today and those who have overcome their trauma.
