Global News published this video item, entitled “Little food, water for Congolese fleeing Goma amid threat of volcanic eruption” – below is their description.
Families fleeing a second potential volcanic eruption in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo said on Friday they were struggling to find enough food and water as the United Nations called for aid and warned about the risk of cholera.
Many escaped to Sake, a town roughly 20 km northwest of Goma that is prone to cholera outbreaks, UNICEF said.
The lack of designated internally displaced camps has worsened the situation at Sake with families having to crowd in classrooms at nearby mosques and churches.
The evacuation order was issued around 1 a.m. local time on Thursday after radar images showed molten rock flowing under Goma.

In This Story: Democratic Republic of Congo
The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known as Congo-Kinshasa, DR Congo, the DROC, or simply either Congo or the Congo, and historically Zaire, is a country in Central Africa. The capital is Kinshasa.
With a population of over 101 million, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the most-populous officially Francophone country in the world.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is extremely rich in natural resources but has suffered from political instability. As of 2018, around 600,000 Congolese have fled to neighbouring countries from conflicts in the centre and east of the DRC. Two million children risk starvation, and the fighting has displaced 4.5 million people.
