The Manu River Women Peace Network, a West Africa-wide association that works to improve living conditions for women, is launching a program in Mali's extreme north, where conflict, hunger and drought are affecting hundreds of thousands.
The desert region of Northern Mali is blighted by conflict, food insecurity and lack of water. Hundreds of thousands of people are suffering from acute hunger in this region that skirts the border with Niger.

In the village of Kabe, about 50 kilometers from Mali's capital, Bamako, a community health worker looks over Aseitu Sacko. She looks in her eyes and palpates her stomach. The clinic is just a small room with a bed and boxes of medicine stacked in the corner.
Sacko brings her toddler over. The health worker asks whether he has ever seen a doctor. Sacko says no.
