Rwandan Innocent Habyalimana wraps a boy's burn wound after treating it under direction from an AmeriCares doctor volunteer at the New Canaan, Conn., clinic in Buranga Rwanda, Oct., 1994. The child received the burn  from a cooking pot which spilled off of the family cooking fire. American medical volunteers and Rwandan workers treated Rwandans who came to the clinic for help in 1994. The humanitarian organization set up clinic about half way between Goma Zaire (now Congo) and Rwanda's capitol Kigali to help people returning from the refugee camps in Goma. While they saw a trickle of refugees, the clinic actually treated more people living in the countryside suffering from illnesses which resulted from the destruction of the infrastructure of the country in civil war.
