Nene Rwenyaguza holds photographs of his family, who he has not seen in 11 years, on May 6 in Columbia. After he arrived in the United States, Rwenyaguza received a call notifying him that his family was safe. “I did not believe that. I said, ‘No, my family has died.’ By God, they called, and I talked to my wife and kids.” Rwenyaguza's family is scheduled to arrive in Columbia on Thursday evening.
