Maggy Barankitse, the angel of Burundi

By Imogen Lamb

Maggy Barankitse started looking after orphaned and sick children when civil war broke out in Burundi in 1994. She put her life at risk by helping both Hutu and Tutsi children, and narrowly escaped death on several ocasions. She now has homes all over Burundi, and has helped some 30,000 children: orphans, Aids sufferers, child soldiers and children displaced by war.
