Mali’s flees


The famine crises is gripping millions of people in Sahel, this is such a bad situation but even more with the Mali conflict. The coup d’état that has happened in Mali is a threat to the humanitarian situation and to the state’ s security. There are thousands of people who are fleeing, and they end up being refugees in zones that are affected by hunger such as Burkina Faso, Algeria or Niger.

In Burkina Faso one-fifth of the population need humanitarian help, and half a million of that one-fifth are malnourished children.

“The situation has worsened because of the impact of the Mali’s conflict” “More than 60.000 people from Mali had fled from attacks and cross the boarders to Burkina Faso, which having such an extreme vulnerable situation” Valerie Amos, the head of humanitarian issues at UN, claimed.

According to the latest UN data, almost 200.000 people have fled from Mali to other countries. 64.000 Malian people are now in Mauritania, about 40.000 people are in Niger and 30.000 Malians are living in the south of Algeria. These countries have drought and insecurity problems. Plus they already had a humanitarian situation.

The UN agency for refugees and the PMA have launched an emergency operation together, to try to help the Malian, which are fleeing, and to restore the situation in the entire region.

In Mali there is 3.5 million of people that are threaten by hunger, in all Sahel there are like 15 million of people in risk of suffering a humanitarian catastrophe.  This is such a cruel situation, where people ar

e scared as they live in a constant conflict country and have a enormous famine crisis.

It looked like they were back into stability with “Provisional Government”. However the groups of protesters physically assaulted Traore. And they named Amadou Sanogo as the leader of the new “Provisional Government”. Since then the capital of Mali is divided in two groups, the ones that support Sanogo and the ones that prefer Traore.

“The Sahel is a lethal combination of drought and displacement due to conflict. This is not only a dramatic humanitarian situation but has become a threat to global peace and security.” Antonio Guterres, an UN refugee manager, claimed.

“ If we do not immediately donate money or food, the resulting inability to possess and distribute enough food during the toughest period between June and September, would be catastrophic for the most vulnerable, especially women and children” Ertharin Cousin, the head of PMA, claimed.

These issues have become an opportunity to Islamism groups, which are supported by Al Qaeda. Nowadays the Sahel is one of the most important weapons market. The clashes and kidnappings are becoming a current issue in this area.
