Rwanda has experienced unparalleled violence and turmoil in recent years. Many villages have been left in the wake of these situations, and Nalani'ikaleomana Foundation has made numerous trips to this area to help these people rebuild. From dealing with PTSD to helping them reestablish medical facilities and schools, this work has been extensive and rewarding.
