Description : These children's mother, who had three pairs of twins, became separated from four of her children in October 2008 when their village was attacked by armed men. After two months of anguished uncertainty, she learned from the radio that the children were at the Covedec Centre for orphaned and lost children. The family was reunited on 8 January. Today they live in a pleasant village facing the Niyragongo volcano.
