I was born a refugee. My parents left Rwanda in 1959, though some of my family later returned. But I have lived in the UK since 1986, when I met my husband Richard.
My family are Tutsis, on of Rwanda's two main tribes. In April 1994, the government called on the other tribe, the Hutus, to wipe out the Tutsis.
As a result, more than one million people died. As soon as I heard about the genocide, I knew
I had to help. I flew to Rwanda three months after massacre began. There were so many orphans, they were clinging on to me, begging me to take them.
