Food crisis in Mali

16-09-2010 Film Ref. CR-F-01064w

The lack of significant rainfall from September 2009 to July this year is one of the main causes of the serious food crisis in Mali and Niger. The ICRC assists the population by buying livestock from local pastoralists and distributing meat, for instance in this village in northern Mali.
