Thousands of DR Congo volcano evacuees return home

DW, 04 Jun 2021
Masika Françoise lost everything: her house - where she lived with her children - and her family business. The entire life she had carefully built up over the years, consumed by flames in a matter of seconds.

She had no time to take any belongings with her. Now she's living with friends – but could only take 2 of her 10 children. The others are with neighbors - one here, one there.

Like Masika, more than 4000 people have lost their homes and their entire livelihoods. Some of them found refuge at friends’ houses or in nearby towns. But now they are depending on humanitarian assistance in order to survive.

Why was there no warning for Goma?
