SURF is fortunate to secure coverage of its work, and the situation of survivors in Rwanda, through an array of different media channels.
This Sunday, BBC Radio Berkshire began a six-part broadcast of the recent visit of two SURF trustees – Sam and Jeff Hunt – to Rwanda. Sam and Jeff both live in Berkshire, and Sam teaches there too – at Sandhurst Comprehensive School. The broadcast is in the form of an interview by Clare Catford with Sam and Jeff, and features an audio travel diary. It presents a fascinating insight into the lives of individual survivors, and can be accessed here (at 02:35:00). Subsequent editions will be broadcast each Sunday at around 830am.
The PBS Online Newshour features a remarkable slide show of images taken by photojournalist Kathryn Cook. The haunting photos were taken primarily at the survivors’ villages of Kinyinya and Kamonyi – built by SURF through funding from Comic Relief. This gives a complementary insight into the lives of survivors – through the lens.
SURF is grateful for all media support that we receive, ultimately helping us in raising awareness of the ongoing challenges for survivors in Rwanda.
