Writing about web page http://www.yenra.com/volcano-africa-congo-goma/

This article tells of the same eruption in the DR Congo. It emphasizes the relief aid that the United States had supplied in January. It does not speak much of the people, except for their need in the refugee camps in Rwanda and how the United States was planning on meeting it.

Relief to DR Congo after Volcano

Writing about web page http://www.act-intl.org/news/dt_nr_2002/updrcongo0302.html

This article told of the immediate relief aid given to the victims of the eruption of a volcano near the city of Gomo in January of 2002. Several aid agencies rushed to help the refugees that had fled to neighboring Rwanda. A few days after the eruption, people were going back to their homes, many of which were destroyed. The aid workers were concerned of further eruptions, but willing to help those without basic necessities. Aid agencies that helped were the Lutheran World Federation, the Anglican Church in Rwanda and the Rwanda Red Cross.
