In 1994, the Mwizerwa family lived through the horrific genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda where nearly one million people were killed in just one hundred days – including their parents and most members of their extended families. By the grace of God, William’s family (his wife, Ebralie, and their four children) survived the killings.
