report Action Medeor

On the weekend action medeor employees packed medication and equipment to be sent immediately to affected areas near Goma where lava flows have caused widespread destruction. 400.000 people have been displaced from one day to the next. Due to a lack of clean drinking water, the danger of outbreaks of dysentery and cholera is acute. People have resorted to drinking water from lake Kivu, which is tainted by lava and ashes.
