Orphans flee Congo volcano by boat

The children were living at the Tchukudu Kids Home. The project is supported by The Art of Courage, an organization that provides shelter, education and support for children.

Footage filmed by Lucienne, one of the older children from the shelter, showed children and others heading to Lake Kivu in a boat.

Their final destination is Idjwi, where the organization is building a school that will temporarily shelter them.
