#couragegoma

On Saturday, May 22, the Nyiragongo volcano awakened after twenty years and is bringing destruction to the nearby city of Goma. Thousands of people have lost everything

Considered one of the world’s most active volcanoes, Nyiragongo had last erupted in 2002, killing several hundred people, leaving another approximately 100,000 homeless, and destroying 15% of Goma. A city of two million people, Goma is the capital of the Nord Kivu district and located only 20 kilometers from the volcano. 

AVSI is launching an emergency appeal to help the population by distributing basic supplies and providing safe shelter
