VIRUNGA MASSIF CHARITY PROGRAMS
Virunga Massif Charity Programs works under Virunga Community Programs to help vulnerable communities living around Virunga massif. These programs are financed by the funds from our tourism products like tourist attractions around the Virunga massif.
Virunga massif has been an area of regional conflicts. As consequence of conflicts many children dropped school and women were raped and families are in need of many resources and we support these families through different programs initiated in Virunga massif.
