The report published Tuesday by the Rwandan Association of Counsellers in Trauma (ARCT-Ruhuka) said that the majority of the survivors remained haunted by what they experienced during the April-July killings, which according to the UN claimed lives of about 800,000 mostly ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus.
The report noted that others are traumatized by the loss of their loved ones, still without burial sites as their bodies have yet to be found.
The organization, which did not provide the number of trauma cases, also affirmed that testimonies of genocidaires acknowledging their crimes before the popular semi-traditional Gacaca Courts are also depressive to the survivors.
ARCT-Ruhuka was particularly worried about the cases of women, who were raped during the genocide, some of whom prefer to keep secret.
The rape trials are conducted in closed sessions in Gacaca, but that does not guarantee disclosure of the identities of the victims.
Rwanda has only two hospitals for psychiatric treatment, which can not cope up with all traumatized patients.
