Shena A. Gacu

Shena A. Gacu, also known as China Keitetsi, was born in Uganda and currently lives in Denmark. At the age of eight years she was recruited by the Ugandan Resistance Army NRA (National Resistance Army). There, she was given a new name:  she was called “China” by her instructor as she is slant-eyed, and she was given a gun. In 2004 China founded “The African Child Soldiers and War Victims Charity” (Deutscher Förderverein Hilfe für ehemalige Kindersoldaten und afrikanische Kriegsofpfer e.V.), whose main purpose is to center for the reintegration of former child soldiers/orphans in Rwanda.
