Mali: people still fleeing the fighting

As clashes continue in the north of the country, the humanitarian situation of displaced people is worsening against a backdrop of food crisis. At least 60,000 people are now displaced within Mali, while more than 22,000 others have found refuge in Niger.


22,000 people taking refuge in Niger

Although there are currently fewer people flowing into Niger, over 22,000 people from the north of Mali are in 23 villages in the Tillabéry area, in the west of Niger, a zone seriously affected by the food crisis. The ICRC and the Red Cross Society of Niger have provided emergency rations of millet, rice, oil, salt and other essentials for 17,000 of them.
