The Mount Nyiragongo is an active stratovolcano with an elevation of 3,470 m (11,385 ft) in the Virunga Mountains, associated with the Albertine Rift. It is located inside Virunga National Park, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, about 12 km (7.5 mi) north of the town of Goma and Lake Kivu and just west of the border with Rwanda. In this area are working the Pallottine Missionary Sisters and the Pallottine Fathers.
It was on 22nd May in the evening, when the Nyiragongo Volcano erupted. What people there are experiencing today is beyond human imagination!
In the picturesque setting of Murambi Hill, two kilometers away is the parish of Ruthuru and the Pallottine Sisters mission nearby! All in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
