Help victims of oil tanker disaster

Posting on behalf of my mother:

On the date of 6th of October 2018, there was a catastrophic collision of a petrol tanker and a lorry in a location near my town of birth (M'buba in the Democratic Republic of Congo). https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/world-africa-45772028

The population of much of my entire village was severely burnt by the ensuing explosion down as shown in these pictures:

I am please requesting your support terms of monetary contribution to help the injuries and rehabilitate these displaced people. As you can see and as corroborated by hospital workers, the small, local hospital is poorly equipped for supporting them.

This includes raising funds for: medications, IV fluids , antibiotics, dressings, bandages, aprons, gloves, mattresses, bed linen, towels, giving sets, cannulas and so on.

I will be extremely grateful for ANYTHING you kindly give. Thank you in advance.
