She escaped Rwanda with her two children and her husband to find shelter in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) which wasn’t all pretty, she and her family walked in the forest of DRC for about 5 months trying to find shelter. Due to an organization that help refugee (UNHCR) Liberata was given an opportunity to come here in the United States in 2003, where she started a new life with her two children.
