Mali: A health centre made operational

It has been in an unfinished state for so many years, that the villagers had almost given up hope of seeing their new community health centre completed. Resigned to this fact, they would continue to go to an old, decrepit and cramped building in the middle of the market square in Doura, Mali. But since June, a wind of change has been blowing through the village: the health centre has been restored by Terre des hommes (Tdh).

Mali: I may have lost an arm, but at least I'm alive

Al Hadder (22) was born in Soni Ali Ber, near Gao. He is a welder, and moved to Kidal in the hope of better earnings. After just two months, a single bullet changed everything.

"It was one morning in May 2014, the day fighting started again between the Malian army and armed groups," he explained. The people of Kidal had left their homes to stock up on supplies during a lull in the fighting. Al Hadder had joined them. "I'd gone back to my workshop, because if I didn't work I'd have no money to buy food.

Fighting malnutrition in Mali

Perched on the side of the Bandiagara cliffs in northern Mali, the village of Sibi Sibi overlooks a dried creek bed. Drought has hit the village several times over the last decade, taking its toll on the livelihoods and health of the town’s 1,300 inhabitants.

Just two years ago, during the Sahel drought of 2012, Fanta Karembe, a twenty-one-year old mother from Sibi Sibi, had to fight to survive. Now, just as she was finally starting to recover from the last crisis, drought has again hit her village.

Hunger Season Has Arrived: So What are We Doing?

Hunger season has arrived in the Sahel region of West Africa, where millions of people are at risk of food insecurity each year. This year, the U.N. estimates that 20 million people—nearly 13 percent of the region’s population—will be at risk of hunger and will lack enough food for a healthy and productive life. Decreased food availability, inefficient markets, high prices, and improper nutrition all contribute to an ongoing cycle of hunger and poverty.

In 2012 discontent over the government’s handling of separatist rebels in the north of Mali triggered a coup in the capital, and opened the door to an Islamist takeover in the north. Hundreds of thousands of Malian people fled the harsh treatment and gross human rights abuses perpetrated by Islamist forces as they took control of towns and cities throughout the north of the country.
