Mali: ICRC president talks about the situation in Mali
On 13 September 2012, amidst a deepening regional crisis, the ICRC asked donors for an additional 21 million US dollars to covers the most urgent humanitarian needs in northern Mali.
This week, Mr Maurer met ICRC staff, senior politicians and staff of the Niger and Mali Red Cross Societies to better understand the Malian conflict, its local and regional consequences in humanitarian terms and the scope of our operations on the ground.
As he prepares to leave Bamako, the ICRC president speaks about the conflict in Mali, what he saw and what he brings back for ICRC donors and his diplomatic contacts.
