Resumption of Educational Activities for Children affected by the Volcanic Eruption in DR Congo
The volcanic eruption from Mount Nyiragongo in DR Congo on May 22nd forced tens of thousands of people to flee the area. A river of boiling lava from the Mount Nyiragongo destroyed hundreds of homes, left at least 32 people dead, and around 20,000 homeless. The lava also engulfed and destroyed Tujali Watoto School & Vocational Training Center funded by Muslim Response USA in Munigi Chiefdom, which was serving over 300 children from extremely poor and at risk families.
With the generous support from our donors, we have relocated the Tujali Watoto School and resumed educational activities in a rented building. Here are some glimpses of the school bags and teaching aids distribution along with the comments from selected students and their guardians.
