Mama Sania was an older woman in Kibuye who saved many people who were hidden and cared for in her home
during the genocide. When Odette Umulisa arrived at her door and begged for help she was taken in by Mama
Sania. She told Umilisa that “she was a Muslim, she believed in God; she thought that if she let me go and I was
killed, God would ask her to account for me.” Then she took Umilisa into her crowded house where she fed and
cared for mostly Tutsi people who were afraid and wounded. This story is from the book “We Survived” published by Aegis Trust.
